    Just wanted to know how many people can relate to my pain. That darn little cut you get right in the crease of your index finger from tying my knots keeps getting bigger and bigger.... Its a good pain I guess...It means Im rigging up my equipment and thats a good feeling....

    It's a shame you're not back in Jersey. There's a guy up there named Big George (you may have heard of him) that can fix you right up. I hear he's a whiz with Duct Tape. He also keeps a very sharp Fillet Knife. Once that bothersome finger is gone, you'll hardly miss it! LOL

    Yeah, I got that cut going on right now from holding up a nice Flatty last night! He done a couple head shakes while my hand was in his mouth and... ouch!:crazy:

    Tim,I feel your pain,literally.I thought I was the only one to get those.I use open face spin reels and braided line,not a good situation for the index finger.

    I always put a drop of super glue in mine. Stings like hell but glues the cut shut.

    Aw, Bill, you beat me to it! You bet that Super Glue works great. Even surgeons use it from what I hear. Just pinch the cut closed, apply a drop of Super Glue, and in a few seconds, your pain is gone.

    This works great with paper cuts, too.

    Just be careful though. If you seal up a wound without properly sanitizing it, you could trap infection. At the very least, bleed the infection out.

    I'm not sure exactly what it's called, but my wife works for a vet office and brings me the "super glue". Works the same just doesn't sting:big_smile:.

    My thoughts exactly or use black tape or duct tape.Just be sure to clean it thoroughly with a triple antibiotic cream to avoid infection!

    A little cut on your finger? what?? I lose my head every time the big one gets away! It happened twice today with some buffs! they would have been my biggest fish, but snagging doesn't work unless you got the right hooks. I have spent $2,341.92 total on super glue for all the times I lost my head to the bigguns!
