Muskie fishing... got snagged up on a branch near the bank... pulled it loose, caught it in the face... Haven't gone fishing without sunglasses since. This one actually wasn't that bad, I guess there's not alot of nerves right there. Getting hooked in the fingers sucks. Shoulders suck. Forearms suck.

It was a long boat ride back to the car, and I didn't have a mirror with me, so I just pushed it through by feel. It took a lot of force to push that huge barb through. Luckily I had a fishing partner on the boat with me, so once I got it pushed through, he cut the hook with some pliers (gotta have a good pair when your fishing for 'skis) and I backed it out.

A week later, I was loading my truck in the dark for a day of fishing... a treble was sticking out of a webbed pocket on a backpack and I buried it in my forearm... had to carry the backpack inside attached to my arm and remove it the same way.... Since that day, I debarb ALL my flies and lures. 100% barbless 100% of the time, ESPECIALLY throwing those huge hooks on the muskie gear. Never again. It's cost me alot of fish, but I'd rather lose fish than go to the ER to have a hook removed from something vital.

That muskie lure incident could have been much, much worse.
