Pinch Barbs for you and fish!

Out this morning for a few hours. Had a down river wind and I'm on river left casting of my left shoulder. Wasn't much happening so I said to myself "one more cast and gone". Famous last words as I ended up taking a soft hackle in the neck. Just as I launched the fly a big gust came up stream and I got nailed. Figures this is the time I forget to pinch the barb. Couldn't get it out myself so off to Emergency. Well after all it is a blood sport.
