The few times I have gotten hooked have all been with the fish still on the hook. Fortunately some of these fish have shown me sympathy and helped get the hook out with a hard shake. Nothing good comes of getting hooked.

Getting hooked is extremely painful, in and of itself. But, removing the hook, no way to describe. I am truly sorry for your painful experience. I did the same thing years ago. Hooked my left thumb, into the bone. Someone comes running with this flimsy "hook remover". No way was that able to remove the hook that had clipped the bone (I laugh about it now). Out came the needle nosed pliers. That worked, but did rip a chunk out of the thumb. I will say that everyone at the boat dock heard the yelp when my now ex pulled that out... Never again.... At least it's ok for us girls to cry.

Hooked on fishing, are you?
That's why it's called Ouch-door Life.
