Fishhook Removal Trick

Hey there fellow Anglers,

Just wanted to share with you a fishhook removal trick I found online after my own recent misadventure

Saved me a trip to the Emergency Room … and the chance to keep on Fishing

that's a terrible way to do it.

there are videos of a MUCH better way and it doesn't hurt as it actually 'turns/moves' the barb away from the skin. and you use only ONE length of regular fishing line, been there, done that to myself. Look it up on Youtube, I'm busy right now or I'd post a link.
