  • Too hot to fish

    In case you're wondering, being outside when the temperatures are over 100 degrees is just a little insane, unless of course you have to be.

    As for me, I haven't stepped outside in a week. First off, I have a spider bite on my hand that's been giving me fits. I don't know what kind it was. We weren't formally introduced, but I know it hurt!

    Anyway, my hand swelled to three times its normal size and was accompanied by a high fever.
