More Reasons To Fly Fish

October 6, 2005 By: Marshall Cutchin

An Acrefair, England angler ended an all-night carp fishing expedition by almost losing his eye to a heavy lead weight. “He flicked his 12 foot rod and the line broke free which caused the heavy weight to shoot out of the water and fly into his face. It went into his left eye socket, smashing his cheekbone and lodged in his face.” Sue Austin in the Shropshire Star.
