Cast a fly enough and it's going to happen. Sooner or later the inevitable accidental body piercing occurs. Wind, new rod, bad line and any number of excuses will work. I get pegged at least once a season by the errant cast. Most times in the boat while witnessing a lone rise. Off the hip, combined with two or three crappy false casts. With me internally saying "STOP"! Usually in the back or shoulder.
Check out the video from the guys at Gink and Gasoline. I was considering doing a post on hook removal. After viewing Louis Cahill imbed the hook himself, I figured I'll leave it be. Simple technique and I can attest it works.
Thanks for taking one for the team Louis.
