Today was a first for me. I finally got nailed with a couple hooks. I cast a little too far and caught a branch over the water. I ripped it out and it zinged back about 100 mph. All I had time to do was to throw my arm up to block my face. Ended up with 2 of the 3 barbs of a Rico buried in my elbow. Hunted down the Doctors and they generously took time out of their fishing schedule to do the surgery. Thanks guys. I really appreciated it. It would've been tough finishing out the day fishing with a Rico hanging from my elbow.
