That always sucks. Done it twice...

I use the initial pain numbin shock to push it through and pinch the barb, then remove and zap a gap the holes until I am done fishing :headbang:

Haven't hooked myself or anybody else yet, but one of these days those pinched down barbs will come in handy! That had to hurt coming out.

What's the recipe for that pattern? Looks like a foam beetle. Size? How do you fish it? What size wt rod and line? Moving water or still?

Oh, yeah, sorry about your injury!

size 16 3x long curved shank nymph hook

black 2 mm foam

black mono cord

orange glow bug yarn for indicator

 

fished dead still on a pond, they usually hit it within 10 seconds if they dont hit cast again, this technique is easiest when you can see the fish

 

fished on an 8wt (only rod i own) with wf line and a 5x Dia-Riki spring creek leader
