Hi Guys

Sitting here in a bit of pain right now.

Two weeks ago while making up slide traces I got a strand of wire in my thumb , I looked for it but couldnt find so I forgot about it.

This weekend the finger started giving trouble and I had to cancel all my fishing plans.So got back yesterday and went to the doc today.

He had to cut my thumb open and took out 7 pieces of S/S wire.Some of them had been lying there for a while without a prob and the last one was the one that got infected.

3 Stiches to close my thumb up again.Sitting here with a bit of pain right now as the local anasthetic is wearing off.

Carbon coated leader for me in the future.......

EXCELLENT CHURP !!!!;)

 

I got a stainless dropshot hook in my left hand, right by the index finger knuckle, Humansdorp hospital, local anestetic (imported not available), a entry and later a exit hole ... all better now.

OWN STUPIDITY in my case, and ofcourse all my hooks are super sharp !
