I almost got a Woolly Bugger earring one time, it was a super windy day on the White River and we were fishing the Bassmaster Classic. It didn't make ESPN though because Van Dam and the other guys all went to Clarks Hill at the last minute.

I had to do some stream-side surgery on my buddy - super bugger.

Very true, but I was not responsible for this one. This was one of those self-inflicted battle wounds. While he bitched at me, I told him I would only help him if he let me take a pic. My only role in this incident was to laugh hysterically and do a little surgery.

Ouch! My wife hung a CDR in my ear a couple of years ago, no fun. My buddy did the fishing line around the hook trick and told me he was pulling it out on 3 but he ripped that sucker clean on 1, dirty trick but it kept me from flinching.

Looks as if this thread has been there and back and now is on some fine body piercing artwork.

For those that calmly answered my question which was intended not to insult those that fish BASS tourneys, but to answer a question I have had for years, but none of my fishing friends knew the answer,...a big Thank you.

For those that acted as if I was trying to get Jackie Robinson into major league baseball I will preface my questions next time so that you can either cut your medications in half or double the dose so that you keep your blood pressure under control.

For those that don't think one can catch something with a flyrod at 15ft or deeper or around stumps, I would ask you to contact the 30 or more stripers I have caught in the past month alone that were holding at 15-25ft, or the redfish and trout that came out of the spartina grass, or around oyster beds on the coast, but they can't talk.

I will in the future NEVER try to ask a question on this board that would make someone of "limited experience" be insulted that I would possibly be intruding or insulting on "their territory". Enjoy your fishing your way, I will enjoy mine and strive to be the best I can be. It certainly does not take a contest to prove that.

On the lighter side: flies I have removed from streamside..

7mm, good post and I agree it seems some jumped to conclusions and went off the deep end. But it is to be expected.

How about Peacher getting K.Oed by a clouser, that is a great story.

7mm - Great facial piercing pics.!

BTW, in my commentary, I didn't mean to suggest that we fly boys can't catch deep fish. My thought process is that along with many other reasons why the conventional folks have an advantage, another is that they can cover more water and quicker. Waiting for a Teeny line to sink before retrieving would take more time than yanking a deep-diving plug back to get it to its required depth.

Not that we can't catch deep fish - only that we can't consistently compete with conventional anglers in deep water.

What Gil said. I love to fly fish but I think most of the time you are doing it you have to accept that you are handicapping yourself somewhat-not always, that's part of the allure for myself and many others I'm sure. A fish caught on fur and feathers, especially if you tied it yourself, means a little more sometimes.
