Doesn’t matter how long you’ve been fishing, at one point or another this is just going to happen.
Whether you like it or not a hook is going to end up somewhere you don’t want it.
Now traditionally, conventional angler wisdom dictates that you need to push the hook through the other side of your skin so you can cut off its barbs before pulling the rest of the hook out. Sometimes however a hook will sink itself in a way that doesn’t quite allow for the conventional technique.
That’s where this technique comes in!
Billy Chapman of Angler’s Inn International really took one for the team on this one. Chapman hooked his own arm with a with a treble hook so he could show us this technique.
All you need is some fishing line and some know-how and BAM! The hook is gone within seconds!
First thing you’re going to want to do of course, is to make sure you cut any extra treble hooks so you avoid any extra snagging opportunities (don’t need one going in while the others coming out)!
Then after wrapping some fishing line around your hands you’re good to go, and that hook is history!
