Hook removal

Recommended Posts

Good information. Hope I never have to use it.

Sticking yourself with a hook to show people how to remove it, brave and should be commended for giving a real life demo.

Sticking yourself with a hook a second time, well that puts you in the " can't fix stupid" category, IMHO!

I posted this video because it's bound to happen to you or to a buddy and you might need to help. I was fishing in Yellowstone 20 years ago, way the hell up Soda Butte creek when a guy walked up to me and asked for help. He had a hook buried in his shoulder right through his shirt. It was his casting arm so he was screwed, couldn't cast or fish and it was a long long way from any sort of help. I put the mono loop on the hook and pulled. Hook out and he was all set. Since then I've used the trick several times and once on myself when I fished with a gift fly (forgot to debarb it).
