All fishermen hope to get a bite, but not like this. We wish Mr. Millichamp and his family all the best.
From Yahoo News:
Fishing writer Ross Millichamp remains in a serious condition at Christchurch Hospital with a flesh-eating disease — apparently after being bitten by a fish. A hospital spokeswoman said tonight the author of the 1997 guide, Salmon Fever_, was “still seriously ill”.
Doctors are reported to have suggested that he may have been bitten by a fish while fishing for barracuda and blue cod off the coast of Stewart Island last week._
