Fishing Fail!

My attempt, literally just moments ago, to fish the River Limay (in the Andes) has failed. Epically. This was my third outing this year, and at least this time I did hook a fish... but it got away. Of course it did. But not before I'd hooked a low-hanging branch of a tree, an underwater root (I had to bite through the line in the end), and my own finger (I was totally stoic as I pulled the hook out of my own flesh). I had never realised just how dangerous a sport this could be... but if it weren't for the British (cold) weather, I really do think that even if the fish wouldn't be, I would be... hooked, that is.
