From the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner:

_Salmon aren’t alone in being snagged during this busy summer fishing season in Alaska. Anglers get the hook, too.

_Monica Musgrove, a nurse at Central Peninsula Hospital in Soldotna, said emergency room staff have removed 62 hooks from patients since May – including a few through the eyelids and one from the tip of the nose.

And it’s likely that many more went to other hospitals or did their own first-aid work.
