When it comes to fishing hook removal, you’ve got to know how to do it right.
In this video, a guy inserts a fishing hook into his big toe, in order to show how you should properly take it out.
Watch as he demonstrates the proper method for taking a fishing hook out of his skin without doing further damage.
Although that video was pretty cringe-worthy, an important lesson can be learned.
Most times, when you hook yourself, the barb doesn’t go all the way through. As demonstrated here, be sure to push the barb through your skin. This way you can use a pair of pliers to cut off the barb. Then, taking the fishing hook out is simple.
If you get hooked on your next fishing trip, be sure to do what this guy did. Keep in mind you will need a pair of pliers to extract it properly.
