Man learns why you never, ever swim naked in a lake where people go fishing.

While nudists and fishermen both share a love of nature, they should seldom be in the same place at the same time. A fly fisher, chillin by Kaisersee—a lake in Augsberg, Germany—hooked something large that could have been an eel or a snake, but was actually a penis.

Herbert Fendt was the unlucky nudist, who at first thought that he was caught in a patch of water plants, but looked down and saw a hook pierced straight through his penis.

The lake is a popular spot for nude recreation, which is reportedly big in Germany.

"I cried out to the fisherman ashore shouting do not pull, do not pull. I was terrified he was going to try to reel me in," Fendt said. He swam ashore and verified that he indeed had a huge penis piercing.

With the hook still in, Fendt went to the local hospital. "The doctor could understandably not suppress a small grin when he saw it," he adds.

Rather than apologize profusely for fishing his dick, the fisherman was incredulous:

The fisherman told me it is not an official bathing lake and he has the right to fish at the spot, which is marked by some signs. I tried to explain to him that he should take into account the many swimmers who use the lake, and that I am unaware of any official prohibition to swim here but he did not care.

It turned into such a big scandal that the president of the local fishing association, Sylvia Fischer had to get involved, saying:

"We fishermen can perfectly understand the situation. We all had at times a fishing hook pierced through one of our fingers, so we can imagine the incident was quite painful," she said.

"Of course, fishermen should pay attention to bathers, but as the lake is an official fishing lake, swimming is at own risk."

Here's hoping these men learn to share.
