Default sharp hooks

someone tell me i'm not the only one!
decided to get a little spey casting practice today.
12'6" 6wt ACR w/ 450gr skagit + 15' RIO type 6 tip - 4' tippet w/ caddis pupa.
must've had a brain fart or two... did my "C", sweep to D, then on my forward cast i caught a big 1 ! ME. on my left jaw. 2 holes( in & out). luckily i debarb all my flies. then about 3 casts later - BAM, i hook myself about an inch from the 1st "hook-up". again 2 holes, in & out. casting off my right side, hooking myself on my left. i guess my D loop must've swung around behind me? i feel like a doofus! i was the only thing i caught all day! another reason for eye protection.
