I've got a scan of a magazine article about exercises to avoid/cure tendonitis in elbow, written by a US orthopaedic surgeon who was also a fly fisher. It certainly helped me. If anyone wants it, email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and I can send you a copy.

I wish I fished enough for a chance at tendonitis.
I feel I would be rather good at it.

cheers,
shawn

fella goes to the doctor and says "doc, I hurt here, here, here and over here." pointing to his elbow, shoulder, neck and the back of his head.
"well you know what you've done, mate?" doc asks.
"no. what's that?"
"you've broken your finger."

boom boom.

not all forums consist of 'which 5wt?' and 'what can I have for $200?' but they're very hard to find.

fly fishing for dummies.

Hmm, that grip hasn't fixed the pain Graeme?

I recon those "Powerball" gyroscopic balls work a treat for building up those forearm muscles.

I'll show you a powerball in a few weeks.

Yeah, it has - generally speaking! I was doing way too much spey, sometimes 2 hours a day, often practicing 70' without the haul. I believe I recognised the symptoms early enough this time that it's not going to persist long. My right arm already feels like it's fixed. The left arm is still a bit stiff.

I thought something was amiss on Thursday last week and laid off the SH Spey over the weekend. (Only a bit of short casting into snags with a 'glass rod chasing bream over the weekend. Surely that's not going to hurt anyone? :D )

Nice, that's getting them out there, bring the blind mans stick with you, I'd love to see what its like with the spey's, sounds like its ideal. DT, MED or PP?

MED 6. Not ideal and probably why I'm hurting a bit. The PP is too heavy for the rod but works okay in this application. I haven't tried the DT lately.
