How To Remove A Fish Hook, Painlessly

On my last post I talked about a neat little trick of removing a fish hook from your body! It is a really painless way to remove a hook, I know from first hand experience, this technique works!
Watch this video which last about 2 minutes and remember that this really does work and I didn't feel a thing when it popped out!

Kenny, great minds think alike. I posted this video over on my blog recently also. I also had a recent experience that was something else. I found this video after my troubles! Hope all your readers watch this. It sure appears to be a good way to do it.

Mel, this video is one of the best videos I have found. I have seen a lot a videos, that where very unprofessional and sloppy procedure at best, down right scary if you know what I mean, didn't mean to copy you though, But this video saved my butt, and I wanted to share it with my readers!

Kenny - I agree with you totally on the video. Sounds like we both had similar incidents recently and hit the internet looking for a way to deal with the problem. By the way, if we both come across something good why not get the word out to fellow anglers. That is what blogging is all about.

Mel, I agree, I just want to make sure I don't step on someones toes! Sometimes we write something similar to someone elses post and accusations start flying, if you know what I mean! I could see it becoming a problem if it is done intentionally!

Hey kenny. Thanks for posting the video. Funny thing, right after I put the comment on the post, the video popped up on Craigs List and I watched there. So, I took the opportunity to watch it again on your post. Always good to keep up to date.

That is a good video and remembering that little trick might come in handy one day. I've never had a hook embedded past the barb while freshwater fishing - yet.

I have however had a two embedded in my hand while saltwater fishing. The hooks were much bigger than those in the video and they were embedded much deeper. Add the possibility of infection from the saltwater, and there wasn't any alternative to taking a visit to the emergency room both times.

shoreman-thanks for the comment,these kind of videos are priceless and valuable to all fishermen!

Bill Coleman-good point, one important thing to keep in mind is the longer the hook is embedded in flesh the greater the possibility of tetanus infection, and that is serious, if you haven't had a tetanus shot, and you get a hook in you it is a good idea to get your tetanus shot up to date.
