Anybody got a classic "hooked human" story?
I hooked myself on the upper part of my neck Wednesday morning during the Russian opener. With two fish on the stringer, we had to cut the suicide trip short for a drive to Soldotna's hospital. The Russian River fly was in there deep!
When I rolled into the emergency room half awake, the nurse was thrilled to see a leader dangling off my neck - I was the first hooked human of the season!
Last year they unhooked 90 anglers.
