Default Top Ten Things A Guy With a Fishhook in His Hand Doesn't Wan

Stolen, I mean borrowed, from www.fishwrench.com

Top Ten Things A Guy With a Fishhook in His Hand Doesn't Want To Hear:

10 ) We're done fishing. You can put the lure down now.
9 ) You must really be able to catch the fish with that lure. I can see you're hooked on it.
8 ) Is that ALLURE cologne you're wearing?
7 ) Hey - does that hurt as much as it looks like it hurts?
6 ) Now we know what the fish feels like.
5 ) Yeah, I see little kids do that all the time.
4 ) The good news is you have a solid hook-set. No fish or person is going to get away from that.
3 ) Cut-off his finger if you have to! That'* a good lure and I don't want you to ruin it.
2 ) Barb-barb-barb, barb-barb-in-my-hand (as sung to Beach Boys tune Barbara Ann)

and the number one thing a guy with a fishhook in his hand doesn't want to hear.

1 ) Is that a fishhook in your hand, or are you just glad to see me?

That is too funny but I'm sure painful. When I go fishing I am scared of hooking myself. I like to fish with the H & H Spinner bait that has the double hook. You can't be too careful.

Default You think that'* bad...

A hook to the hand is a painful thing. Try one to the head. The www.fishwrench.com technical advisor was fishing a tournament His partner put a treble hook (those are the three-hook jobs for the non-fishermen) in the back of his own head. Our technical advisor couldn't get it out using traditional methods, so he had to yank at the hooks with a needle nose. WIth a few tugs, the two of the three imbedded hooks popped free.

Mr. Sensitve politely asked (disappointedly) if our wounded fisherman wanted to go to the hospital. The man in pain asked "Is it bleeding?"

Even though it was, the Fishwrench.comer said no, just so they could keep fishing.

It never amazes me the things us fishwrenchers will do to keep on the fish.

My sister once caught me by the back of the neck. I was probably seven, we were fishing off the dock of a friend'* lake (they own a large campground in Wisconsin). This particular sister is nine years older than me. I didn't realize I was hooked. She was behind me casting, and I was just minding my own business with my Snoopy starter pole. Next thing I know, I feel a little tug on my neck, and Brigit is screaming her head off. I literally didn't feel a thing but a little tug. Just the skin, I guess I'm kinda lucky she didn't get spine. Dad cut the barb off, pulled it out, and mom put a bandage and a kiss on it. I was of course crying, not because of pain, but my sister was crying and freaking out and I know I had a hook in my neck. My brother thought it was hilarious.

I have to admit this, like it or not, but I hooked my daughter in the back of the head once. Not bad, didn't even sink in to the barb. But, it was the only time I have ever told her to stand still, and she did...

She took it like a trooper too. Couple of tears (more shock at my reaction than pain), a juice box, and she was back to snagging sunnies. She won't stand anywhere near me when I cast anymore, tho....

Remind me never to go fishing with you.

Mental note...Bonneville Club members are worse with fish hooks than www.fishwrench.com members; do not fish with Bonneville owners.
