How to remove a fish hook from a finger
Here are two videos showing the tools and method to remove a hook stuck in you or a friend.
Captain Vincent Russo Explains how to remove a fish hook & his personal First Aid Kit.
Capt. Russo has many very good and informative fishing videos including a newer way to filet a Red-Fish using an unconventional wide, curved, heavy blade knife. Very interesting. Plus it's a good excuse for buying another knife! :-)
How To Remove A Hook From Finger (REAL FOOTAGE!)
Angler hooks himself in the finger with a treble hook. Brad Wiegmann (outdoor writer) was on the scene with (ATF Pro Staff) Chad Lamberth and Nech Wilderness (founder) Joe Nech at
Lake Fork in when the incident occurred.
Brad helps the gentlemen out by removing the hook and shows us the proper way
to do so. Alba,
It is guaranteed that if you fish, some day you will hook yourself! Ugh...now what?
The important tool to add and keep in your tackle box is a new high quality pair of dikes or what I have is a quality heavy duty cutting force-multiplier wire cutters shown in the photo. Hear in
some of the hooks we use are big with sometimes three times the wire diameter
of a typical bass fishing hook. You will need a sharp edged hardened steel
cutting blade to do the job. Florida
Before you assume that rusty old pair of dikes you have in your tool box will do the job, test cut (practice) on some of your hooks to be sure it will do the job and you understand the technique. Even sacrifice some old lures that haven't caught any fish anyways, this is a good excuse to get rid of them!! You don't want to wiggle the hook around while stuck in you or your friend causing more pain and discomfort.
Also practice this method in a rubber sole shoe like Capt. Russo shows. A little practice will make this a no-brainer when you or your wife must do this.
Serious wire/hook cutters
