I know there are some stories out there. I have saw some funny stuff, and have pulled a few, "Boy that was stupid of me" things. The one that comes to mind right off is the day I took my 2 boys and my sister fishing. Boy what a mistake that was..... My boys were about 5 and 6 and my sister was about 10. You would figure you tell a 10 year old, that she had better watch for flying hooks, and to move down the bank a little ways, that them might, just might realize that they could possibly be in danger. No a 10 year old has a mind of their own. To make a long story short, my youngest son was throwing out, and he was a pretty wild caster, never looking back to see what was behind him, hooked my sister in the ear lobe. I saw all this going on, and I saw my son keep jerking the pole trying to get hook undone. My sister let out a scream, the hook went clear thru the lobe. Nicely pierced. After I got her calmed down I took some wire cutters and cut the barb off and pulled it back thru. That was my sisters last fishing trip!
