I notice the story says that the prosthesis was returned, but not the rod and reel. :D

Maybe he should try a magnetic hand. Just don't get too close to the tackle box.

Good thing it wasn't taken by a loose seal. You'd never get that back.

When I was a kid my sister didn't pay attention to her fishing pole and a fish pulled it off the dock. About an hour later I caught the fish again, rod and reel still attached.

Hey man, if I got my hand back, I'd'a told the guy to keep the rod and reel as thanks.

/which is why my most expensive rod was only $45
//you'd be shocked what a big bluefish can do

(a) Otherwise, he'd have to go to a second-hand store.
(b) Another example of why disarmament is difficult
(c) "Luckily, another fisherman hooked the exact same fish later on, and returned the prosthetic limb" said the fisherman offhandedly
(d) Everyone should give this guy a hand

/choose one
