Had a co-worker of mine go to the Russian yesterday and got a Russian Fly hooked in his neck. He couldn't get it out, so he decided to continue his fishing. He said he got a lot of looks and double takes while fishing with the fly sticking out of his neck. Was on the right side.
He got hooked by his buddy while trying to pull in a Red. He went to net the fish and the fish popped out of the net and his buddy pulled his rod up hard to keep the fish from escaping, thus releasing the hook from the fishes mouth, in which the line under pressure released and flew around his neck and the fly hooking him real good in the neck. I saw the pictures and laughed my tail off. Wish I had it so I could post it.
Did anybody see this guy? He was fishing on the Kenai near the cleaning tables, and was on the ferry, and stopped by Girdwood for some beers.
It was a pretty funny story.
