1. 20 years of EXTREMELY cautious fishing...my time has finally come. Took a treble hook to the lower back. Straight into the muscle, past the barb. Iced it down, numbed ...more up, ripped it out with my pliers.

      @ shallow... Doesn't have to be rusty, that's a myth. Any wound can cause it without vaccination. Punctures such as yours are more prone as they are more ...more difficult to clean. Shot is not expensive.

      All we can do is hope. I don't post many pictures here any more unless it's something I think is particularly worthy. But even then sometimes (often) I'm ...more wrong.

      Yeah, I've also noticed those pictures tend to stay in the popular section far longer than any other pictures... I dunno, wish they would fix it though.
