Hi Cutch:

That is pretty funny stuff. I really chuckled when I saw it. We need more humor like that in times of great economic turmoil. I think we have all been hooked in various places during our life time as flyfisherman! :lol: Sometimes mentionable and sometimes not. Years ago I was hooked in the middle of my back by a famous and nationally known flyfisherman while trying to take a picture of him casting upstream. The picture was for a publication. I was on my knee in the middle of the side channel of the Yellowstone River and this famous angler was to cast his fly over my head. A breeze came up and accidents do happen. He caught me, his trophy of the day at 160 pounds. Anyway I clipped the fly off and finished the photo shooting and then went to the emergency ward in town to have the fly removed. The pictures turned out just great! :) Couldn't keep the fly as a souvenir as they had to clip the fly in two to get it out. It is too small to sign on anyway. Ouch! :D

Best Regards,

Stanley
