Has anyone ever got cryptosporidium? I contracted it years ago from biteing my fishing line off in contaminated water. I had a parasite in my small intestine, and could not keep out of the bathroom, and this continued for two months. After I went to the doctor the next day I got a call from some government person inquireing what water I had been around. I was fishing a creek that was spring fed and looked crystal clear? Anyways I got my hair cut not to long ago and my barbor was talking about it too. He got his from a pond. He too bite his line off at the not. This was when I wass a bass fisherman primarily, so I had alot of re ties. I dont know why I thought about this, jus hate to see someone else get it. Cant bite off braid, so I have no problems now, lol.
