It happens to all of us...the fishing fail. Fortunately, most of our fails are not caught on tape for the world to enjoy and share...over and over!
This poor guy wasn't so lucky and is on his way to becoming the poster child for the importance of paying attention while fishing. (Thanks, YouTube!)
Take a look and learn from his mistake, and his fishing buddy's too!
Always remember these fishing safety tips:
Wear a life jacket and make sure each passenger wears one, too. Don't fish in areas where it is not permitted.
Always wear foot gear appropriate to the conditions. And always handle fish carefully.
Oh, and don't smack your friend in the face with your rod if you can help it!
