Yes, there was no avoiding it. There was no other way around it. I had to go to A&E.
That was me on Tuesday. I had gone fishing with y OH and my FIL ( yes I fish- get over it).
I have the season record for the largest fish this year, a carp weighing in at 10lb 7oz, and as Tuesday was going to be our last day out at the lakes I was hoping my record was going to be in tact by the end of the day.
Now it has been said that I would obviously go to any lengths not to have my record broken by my OH- but this was pushing it.
I am not into self harming, so sticking a fecking barbed hook into my little finger is not my idea of fun or a way to keep my record unbeaten!! None the less that is exactly what happened.
This was it after I had local anesthetic and the barbed end pulled through!! Fecking Hell it bloody hurt………..then he decided to get clippers from theatre and snip the end off so it could all be pulled out fully…………to say it smarted a little was the biggest understatement. To add insult to injury he decided to stick me with a Tetanus as well.
So to all you who think fishing is boring, relaxing and nondescript- I BEG TO DIFFER!!
It has now been put on my list of dangerous/ extreme sports.
Needless to say I wont be sticking a hook in my finger again anytime soon.
