  2. ouch!

    seems like safety glasses could be a good idea when fishing in close proximity to other anglers
     
  3. OUCH!! I have pulled hooks out of my head, my brother in law's ear and watched my dad's buddy cut one out of his scalp. I have not had to experience this one though. We wear glasses as a rule when fishing. One thing to note, it is almost never someone else who hooks you but rather your own hook that finds it's way under your skin. I know it sounds like we must be pretty wild with our casting but really it just 20+ years of fishing experiences summed up in a couple of sentences.

    I hope that was not a x-ray of you or any one you know.

  5. Not saying it was involved in this pic, but I'm sure a lot of 'accidents' involve alcohol consumption. Apparently it is the greatest cause of drownings in adult males. That's one huge weight to be yanking back!
     
  6. Actually not. I can't tell where the hook pierced you, or if it was barbed.

    Luckily it wasn't me :smile: I came acros the story and thought it was pretty amazing. I don't think the hook was involved only the weight. I guess it proves that accidents can happen :frown:
