Fishing fingers

Post by Obz » Thu Jun 20, 2019 1:43 am

So every year about this time I start to wear my fingerprints smooth from fishing a lot. Does this happen to anyone else. Items just seem to slip out of my hands.

I've done that, and worse. I've actually had my thumb get so rough that it would crack open and bleed from lipping so many fish.
Try not to let your mind wander. It is much too small to be outside unsupervised.

Nope, I sometimes go home with a skunk, but not often. Its just that down here in the ponds I fish, the fish are as dumb as they are big!

That's awesome! I look at rough/raw thumbs and just below the thumb as badges of honor. I have tried explaining it to my wife and she just looks at me and says. Oh, that's nice. Oh well. :mrgreen:

Anyone get line cuts from pulling out snags? Never fails I get them at the joints of my fingers and they stay there for weeks on end.

It only took me once to learn, never pull a snag without thick gloves on. I use braid almost exclusively, and it hurts big-time when it cuts you, because it burns you, too.

I also get those smooth fishing fingers. In my case it happens because the Swedish Bikini Team keeps tabs on my whereabouts and they often parachute in to wherever I'm fishing and they demand that I rub warmed oil on their bodies. If I'm on a slow bite I'll do it, but I have noticed my fingertips and palms and gotten smooth. 8-)

Not just from pulling snags, any time I spend a day fishing a reel with braid on it I end up with a few cuts. I just glue them shut now.
