I got a nice sized hook right up in my thumb once past the barb, had to go to the hospital to get it cut out. They put laughing gass on me while injecting numbing stuff into my thumb and I started singing jinglebells really loud in the hospital. Dam that was funny, but the hook hurt! I’ll tell ya.
Best moment? I’m not sure, getting a nice 6kg snapper off the front of my uncles launch in the Marlborough Sounds was a great one.
