    fishing buddy Gary or better known as Geezer was putting out some bank lines a couple weeks ago and he caught a big sucker.(himself).He was throwing one of the lines out and got a #8 Circle in his finger.Tried doctoring it himself to no avail.Went to doc after about a week of suffering.Doc looked at it ,gave him some medicine , bandaged it up and said keep it clean and dry.Yeah right.
    Anyways he went back to doc yesterday and it don't look good.Black spots inside finger, they don't know what it is.Finger Red like a plum he said.So next week they are going to do more testing and a possibility he may lose that finger.He ain't to happy right now.He went fishing last night.Saying that if he has to lose a finger he's gonna get all the fishing in he can before then.He is about as Bull Headed as they come.Anyways keep himin your thoughts.
    And folks be darn careful with those Circle Hooks.They aren't very forgiving.
    Thanks In Advance!!

    dang John, ya better go with gary and help the guy out some. Ya know, catch bait, take his fish off and keep him a cold beer opened for him.:smile2: Hope the guy gets better and don't lose his finger. Infection isn't a good thing. Tell him i'm thinkin bout him. He was hilarious at the gathering this spring.

    Don't think they make them any more hardheaded than he is.To be honest folks it don't look good at all.Real red and swollen big time.He'll know more come Tues I suppose.

    Country Heart It won't do no good to keep a open beer for him.H e don't drink so I'd just have to drink them all:wink::roll_eyes:.He try's to not act concerned but I know him well enough to know he is really worried.
    Thank You all for your concern's.Let's just hope for the best.
