My brother sent this to me! His fishing partner obviously doesn't know about TJ's "Going out!" Fisherman gets hooked - in the eye February 05, 2007 08:53pm Article from: AAP A SYDNEY man has become hooked on fishing – literally – after a three hook lure became lodged in his eye. Sam Layoun, 32, from Seven Hills in Sydney's west, ended up with the triple fish hook lure in his left eye after his brother Charlie attempted to cast out on the Hawkesbury River at the weekend. He was rushed to the Royal North Shore Hospital for eye surgery where the hooks were removed from Sam's eyelid – but not before he posed for a photograph. Sam escaped the incident without any damage to his eye. Doctors returned the lure to Sam, who plans to use it again when he returns to fishing in a few weeks time.
