[Editor’s note: Here’s another one of those evergreen posts that should probably appear every year to ensure folks know how to do this properly. A hook gets buried in every angler eventually.]
Just a few years in the past, we posted a stunning video that exhibits methods to take away a hook caught in your pores and skin. That video was most notable for the man really hammering the hook level in for good measure. For the extra squeamish, right here’s a way more civilized demonstration of the identical method from photographer Louis Cahill and Georgia fishing information Capt. Kent Klewein. Collectively, they produce the Gink and Gasoline weblog. The standard of the video is a lot better on this model, and it’s a ability each angler ought to know.
This methodology shouldn’t be used with huge hooks in delicate areas.
