    Happens more often than you'd think it would. That's why sunglasses or clear glasses and hats are always recommended as safety equipment when fishing.

    yeah that guy is actually a total moron 1. for not wearing glasses 2. for trying to surgically remove a hook by himself without wire snips. Barbed hooks are fine just wait till you get home and snip the wire on the bend before attempting to remove the hook. There is a survival guide to fishing some folks just jump right in the jungle in their underwear and come out with hooks briars and poison ivy all over them. uh duh
