    Default catch of a lifetime

    She was a good sport about it and we went back fishing after the ER visit to get it removed.

    That was as close as you wanna get to having a real problem! Glad to see and hear that it's only a small puncture.

    Glad she's alright.

    One more reminder why eye protection should ALWAYS be worn around anyone fly casting.

    I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.

    Wife got me on the back of my hand a few weeks ago, I am glad I crush all barbs before I tie my flies.

    Glad to see that she is alright. I was fishing a spillway yesterday catching a ton of fish back to back, of course the other fly fishers seen me from across the way and started making their way over to me. One guy gets about 5 feet from me and starts casting and hooks me in the neck with a size 6 streamer. Let's just say I wasn't too happy. After all of that, he kept fishing right next to me and hooked me AGAIN in the arm with a nymph. He kept fishing right on top of people all day long and didn't seem to have a problem with it. Some people...

    You have more self control than I do! Hook me once, ok you are ignorant but things happen. Keep fishing that close to me AFTER you just hooked me, I will happily drag you back to your car so you can leave.
