I sit here in my office this morning, looking at the two holes in my thumb, asking myself is it worth it?

I took my Eldest Nephew trout fishing for the first time. He never landed a trout until now. I hope I didn't spoil him since every browner he caught was over 14 inches with one reaching 16inches!

During the removal of his largest fish, I suddenly realized a treble had dislodged from the mouth of the trout, entering my thumb. ALL OF THE WAY THROUGH!! NOOO GOOD! Fortunately, I had just borrowed him a rap of mine that I had crimped the barbs for Catch and release season. I still had to pull the hook back out the way she came, riding over the crimped hook bump, OUCH!

Was it worth it? I don't have to think long and hard about it. I just have to remember my nephew saying "That is the first trout I have ever caught" to come to a quick conclusion that YES it was darn well worth it!!! Take a kid fishing, take a friend fishing, take your dad or mom fishing or whom ever you can. Don't keep the fun to yourself!!! Keep the rods bendin'!!! JIm W

OUCH!!!! I had the luck(or bad luck)to find myself with a small circle hook hanging on my ear this last weekend! I was with my niece(shes 4)fishing the mighty Zumbro. She had tried all day to cast with almost no luck. But when i heard her say oh oh and then i felt that sharp tingling sensation in my ear i knew she had caught a big one! Luckily i crimp the barb also on almost all of my hooks so releasing is easier(and getting one outta the ear is also easier)and i managed to slide it out. It still kinda stings but i guess it is all worth it when they actually catch a fish!

OF COURSE ITS WORTH IT.........HOPEFULLY NO MORE HOOKS IN THE FINGERS NEXT TIME. MY IMPALED FINGER IS HEALING JUST FINE AND I WILL BE ALOT MORE AWARE OF WHERE THOSE HOOKS ARE TOO! MAYBE I SHOULD GO BARBLESS OR EVEN SKIP THE TREBLE HOOK THING ALL TOGETHER, I KNOW I COULD CATCH PLENTY OF TROUT ON A SINGLE HOOK PLASTIC BAIT BUT THE RAP DOES SO WELL. I DON'T SEE TOO MANY PEOPLE THROWING SHAD RAPS WITH A BAITCASTER FOR TROUT BUT HEY.........IT WORKS!
WET NETS!
