Unhappy Careful when fishing alone!!!!!

I left Saturday morning to go fishing by myself. I was walking up a path by a stream I had fished before many years ago. I wasn't walking where I was walking very closely. I stepped in a hole with my right foot and went in to ablve the knee. My left foot turned as I went down and I sat on it. Very painful and I wont be fishing for a couple of months. Took me 25 mins to limp out on 1 foot. I cracked the big bone in my left ankle and will be in a cast for 6-7 weeks. Even when you know the area, its a good idea to keep your eyes open. Guess I was looking forward to fishing and not paying attention.

Went in over my head while fly fishing.Iwas able to pull myself up the bank to drain out the water.I didnt have on a belt, by my self, steped in a hole 8' deep ,wrecked a good cigar but made it out.
