Via-email -- Something smells fishy. Was that a real shot of a fishhook in someone's eye or was that Photoshopped ("Catch of the Day," Summer 2014 Torch, page 7)? Either way it's really gross ... but eye-catching (pun intended...LOL!). I thought I had it bad when I got my right ear involuntarily pierced with a fishhook courtesy of my older brother's errant cast when we were both teens. But if that picture is real, someone has a worse story than my fish tale. Anyway, good job on the story. Fishing always seems so serene, so not many people think about the dangers lurking. But I can tell you firsthand ... they exist!

Unfortunately for the victim, that photo is very real. And there are many more like it -- or even worse -- in medical journals across the internet. Thank you for sharing your story and for your interest in Torch.
