Double Hook Up


Recommended Posts

We are on our annual fishing trip at Jindabyne and today I had a little accident.

I was changing lures and caught my index finger on my left hand and my thumb on my right hand.

I was well and truly hooked barb and all. Brand new out of the box very sharp lure, at least it wasn't rusty.

Knowing I wouldn't be able to get it out myself or even get out of the boat we needed to call for back up.

A 000 call for the ambulance was made. When they arrived the ambo said 'hmm not too sure how I can tackle that'. After some thought and local anesthetic he did a great job getting them both out without hooking himself.

That looks very nasty Lyn.

Good to hear that you got the hooks out without any damgage and that was a cheeky joke from the ambulance officer.

Enjoy your trip and hope you get in amongst some nice fish.

Congratulations on becoming a Gold Member by the way.

All the best

All good now. It was bad at the time but once the hooks were removed and the anesthetic wore off no pain just a couple of tiny scars.

No fish today unfortunately all getting ready to spawn.

Chelub thanks for the congrats.
