Deanna, so sorry to hear that you can no longer fly fish. Yesterday during a lunch break from fishing a buddy and I talked about what we would do if for some reason we were no longer able to fly fish. I think I would still trout fish but use ultra light spinning gear. I watched spin fisherman who used a single hook mepps spinner and he was a puppet master with that rod. We also talked about tying nymph patterns on small jigs. Dry fly fishing might be a challenge but think of the possibilities.
Of course you might just decide that spinning is not for you and who could blame you. I do wish you well..
