OUCH!!! That must've really hurt...especially if it went through your fingernail!

I'm getting queezy.................

P.S. I'm glad that you at least inked a fish for your troubles!

Good god man! I hope you had the sense to sacrifice that fly and cut the barb off before you pulled it out.? From what i understand even if you have to push a hook the rest of the way through thats the way to go.
I like the barb-less a lot it just make the release so much easier. Especially with the little guys.

soooo, judging by location and direction that it was on a back-cast? keep er clean.. and barbless hooks are probably a good idea in general.
