How to dislodge barbed hooks from your skin/flesh
« on: July 04, 2015, 08:03:21 PM »
I stumbled across this video while reading up on spey casting techniques.  Although, it should be preached to pinch barbs when fly fishing, and especially when spey casting anyhow.  But, in the event that you do lodge a barbed hook balls deep into your flesh... remember this video.

The added "fleshy" sound they added when he puts in the hook really makes the video.

Most hands on demonstration I think I've seen of this method. Usually they just describe it- not actually hook themselves  :o

Anyone know why using a piece of string would be better than a quick jerk in the same direction with a pair of pliers?
