12 - The Perkins Journal, Thursday, June 21, 1973 ica xpe Is oo In blent medical experts... usuad) while participating in the sport.., agree that "fish- ing is goc~ "hereapy, both phy- sical and emotional."' Literally hundreds of thou- sands of Oklahomans head for the lakes and streams in this state each year. They don't need a doctor to tell them that fishing is relaxing. They pro- bably have seen the doctor sit- ting in the next boat With a line in the water. Fishing can be elaborate, complete with the trip to the seashore and renting deep sea boats and equipment. Or it can be the cane pole and worms affair on the banks of a neigh- borhood creek. Either way it gets us out in the fresh air slca and sunshine, gets our minds off of the cares of the day. Fishing is only mild exer- cise, unless you are the vigor- our type who wades through rac- ing rapids br rows hard for mi- les. R's good for the body and spirit, but it has some built in hazards. The most common fishing ac- cident is catching a barbed hook in the flesh, usually a finger or a hand, but some- times a leg or other part of the body. Wise fishermen usually shield the hooks on their plugs, or they keep them in the small plastic boxes they originally came in. Fly or bait casters are re- sponslble for many hook ac- in ereop cidents to their fellow fisher- men. Look before each cast to make certain that no one is in the way. This will also save lures from snagging on trees and bushes as you cast. If, despite precautions, a hook becomes embedded in your hand or finger, don't try to pull it out. If you have a pair of dia- gonal or side cutting pliers in your tackle box, cut off the shank. Your physician will push it through, thus causing less further damage to torn fie sh. After removing the hook, the doctor will also, if he thinks necessary, administer anti- biotics and tetanus toxoid. Hook wounds often lead to in- fection unless treated properly.
