Just in case you have to do this someday....



I once got snagged by a fish hook in my arm. Nothing as dramatic as this occurred. I had to poke the hook through with plyers and then cut off the barbs to remove the hook. Amazngly, it did't hurt!

I'm not fishing for anything today. Have a hook free Saturday!

  3. Imagine a fish hook like this one in a duck's leg. I wrote a post about removing just this thing from a duck one time.

    "Hell no, Captain, it din't hurt a bit..." said the macho-man with bravura.

  9. 7 seconds in I stopped. I can't watched that. I did like Dumb Bush and hooked my cheek once. Have a great weekend.

  10. Funny, cause this is one of indicators of emotional health. Fish hooks. For years my family has felt like a bowl of fish hooks. And I can't go in and just get one hook I get barbed and hooked by the entire bowl !! My brother killed himself last month and I am enormously sad about this. And the fish hooks feel like they are all around me right now. But if I work my program I will be ok. I used to talk to my brother everyday for the last 2 years and I miss him. I want to stay out of the bowl of fish hooks but stay available.

  12. Curious, I watched the clip and found it interesting and ingenious. Glad I don't fish.
