Default Re: Fly Fishing Injuries

oyster bed and old shoes for me. I was wading the Indian River just north of Oslo Road and found several oyster beds that looked "fishy". climbed up on one took a few casts, had seen some fish near another bar a few yards away and decided that I needed to be on that bar closer to the fish. as I made my way off the bar my shoe lace got caught on the oysters and I went bum over appetite. sliced open my hands, legs and arms. only a few stitches were needed on this mistake. The point is that no matter the type of fishing there are bound to be injuries and accidents. the only thing you can do is learn from your mistakes and hope that you dont make them again.
