    i guess i dropped a small trout hook in my carpet under my desk a while back and never realized until it found its way into my toe. my first thought was to use the technique of pushing down on the eye and popping it out with mono. unfortunately it seemed buried way too deep. second thought was to push it out the other way as it seemed the point of the hook may be close enough. i tried pushing but could not get it through. finally i gave up and called the wife over and said i think you gotta drive me to the hospital.

    at the er, the doctor was able to get it out. she struggled for a while and appeared to mangle my big toe even more but after the numbness wore off i didnt feel any pain. just had a small scab. anyway, she was able to get it out after i mentioned the fisherman's technique. in the video you can see her push down on the eye with her thumb while pulling the other way with pliers.

    so yea, fishing accidents can happen while reading fish reports. haha

    Most of my internet fishing injuries occur when I click the "Buy it Now" button. ;)

    Never suspected trout fishing could be so dangerous.

    MAJOR: 'What do you make of this troop's trout hook oweeee epic Gunny"????

    GUNNY HIGHWAY: "Adapt, Improvise, never use less than a 2/0 Ringed Circle
    Hook, even for trout. Just put a whole jar of trout dough bait on it. That way if
    you hook yourself, just tie some 100lb to the truck bumper and yank the sucker OUT"!!!!
    I recommend 3 shots of Jack first so you get a good buzz while bleeding in the towel!!"
