I now crown you King Dumbass.
Thanks for the laugh and I'm glad you lived to tell about it.
nice one Geek.
Geek, that shit happens to you because it makes for good reading. I remember reading about your multi-state burns on your old GSX-R thinking the same thing.
I laughed my ass off imagining you riding with your finger impaled.
Nice storytelling Geek. I've been thinking about giving flyfishing a whirl myself. Think I'll leave the bike at home though..
I can't remember being hooked, but I did whack someone up side the head with a wad of weights.
Fishing under a bridge... have to have a lot of weights for a side-cast and to keep the line in place in the river... I'm casting, and in mid cast, he stood up.... 3 of the larger lead weights smacked him right on the side of his face.
I was afraid I had killed him, but after it was all done it was pretty funny.
I'm even giggling here at work as I think about it...
That's hilarious! Wish I would've been up in Big Thompson to see the motorcycling fly fisherman!
I've only tried fly fishing once, before I decided I didn't need ANOTHER sport where my boyfriend got to tell me what to do
Anchient red neck proverb,
Ya gotta be tough if yer gonna be stopid
Stoopid is supposed to hurt...
Excellent tale - I can picture you alternatley laughing, wincing and screaming.
Where I grew up we had only a medical clinic which I unfortunately had to visit several times. The Doc's were old as dust. On evey inch of wall space were business sized cards, each with a picture of a body part - each card had a real fishing hook in it showing where the old as dust doc's had removed the hook - always made the waiting room wait interesting. The one's from the eyes made me cringe.
Glad you came out ok.

Good job Geek! Most would have given up by now. At least you caught something.
I got a fly hooked in my cheek once. Had to have a friend pull it out with my forceps. I think it was a size #22. :huh
On another note, I was at an eye doctor in FTC and the Doc showed me a photo of a fly embedded in a guys eyeball that he had taken out. Wear your glasses all the time.
That fish is laughing at you.

Thanks for the fish tale and the laugh, Geek!
I'm guessing that wasn't a barbless hook you had tied on, huh? Regs are pretty restrictive up here in BC for fishing. Single barbless hooks only is pretty much the standard no matter where you go fishing here, nowadays. Makes landing a good catch a bit more difficult, but maybe the fisheries folks are ADV riders as well and they were just trying to save us from ourselves!
Geek , you are awesome!
I frequently ride-to-fish , and have set the bike up to carry a couple rods because of doing stuff like this.
"Oh , I don't have far to go , I'll carry it across my lap in two pieces." SNAP! Did'nt do that agian!
On a side note , those little hooks HURT! I snagged one the other day (decorating the trees with my flies!) , pulled , it let loose and I spent the next few minutes extracting a prince nymph from my right cheek!
Glad that little pink bastard wasn't your demise.
I haven't cried at work since I started but that RR has me laughing so hard I can't see straight!! Reminds me of a Patrick McManus episode!! Thanks Geek I needed that.
good RR Geek - I laughed, I cried, I wished I was there taking video..
