Default Re: I killed a fish

I was fishing a few weeks back and had something funny happen. I was highstickin' and had a strike so I did what you're supposed to do and set the hook, I just set it a little harder than was necessary I guess. Anyway, I saw a small brown flying directly at my head and time seemed to stand still. I did a weird in-air mend/contortion with my fly rod to attempt to redirect the poor fish. It narrowly missed my head but was then hanging over my shoulder somewhere on my back! I tried looking over my shoulder, still too confused to simply pull the line back over. By the time I figured out what needed to be done, the little guy gave a mighty twitch and fell back into the water I was standing in...
