Default Hook in Eye Video!


Saw this on another forum. OUCH!!! When I move upstream of my wife, she
gives me about 2 seconds to move. I tend to grab her line as it passes my
face, and hold it until I'm fairly safe.....

I can't watch more than a second or two. It just makes me cringe.

Hi FrankB2,

After reading Ant's and patyer's comments I decided to pass on that one.

It's not too bad, Frank.....REALLY The doctor removing the the little PTN is actually quite skilled, and the process takes very little time.

Video's not showing (not that I'm disappointed), but I'm guessing the "victim" wasn't wearing sunglasses. 'Nuff said.

Unlike the YouTube videos, you need to click on the title at the top of the
video box.

Somehow I wish you hadn't told me that Yuck!

Best advertisement I ever saw for sunglasses and barbless hooks.

Apart from the obvious advice guys, wear eye protection, if you come across this situation make sure both eyes are covered with a protective eye patch or similar until you get to hospital.
Its just that if only the affected eye is covered, the uncovered eye still looks around, followed by the eye with the fly in!
That can make a bad situation a lot worse.
Regards
Richard
