The calm and tranquil settings, the peace and quiet, the feeling of being at one with nature … ahhh, fishing is a beautiful hobby. Finding your spot, casting your fly line and hearing a horrific cry of pain as you hook somebody’s eyeball. Ouch.
Eyeball-hooking does happen, along with all manner of other nasty injuries, from being bitten by aggressive fish to nasty infected toe stubs – fishing can be a brutal hobby. Just look at this gore-fest for proof.
