When Sticks Attack....

You know all those video's you've seen when a hook is embedded in someone's face?

Kind of makes you queasy?

Imagine that with a 2 inch piece of wood in your buddies face, and it wont let go.

Thankfully after a bit of teeth gritting we extracted the shank and with a bit of pressure, the blood that was pouring out of the open wound shut off and we were back to fishing.

He was lucky as the attacking stick didn't go horizontally through the cheek, but up and thus not in.

We shook our head at his misfortunate fall and ultimately the luck he had that it didnt inflict more damage.

Be safe out there, and when sticks attack....be ready.


  1. Crazy thing is I didn't even know it was there. I got back up the bank and Millsy goes "holy crap what is sticking out of your face!"
