Fish Hook Removal (Video Tutorial)


Our friend Michael Chilton put together this hands-on tutorial of how to (safely) remove a hook. Definitely don't try this at home, but when you inevitably hook yourself, you'll know what to do.

Fish long enough and you’re bound to hook yourself.

This video demonstrates a fish hook removal method that can keep you fishing without a trip to the doctor.

And I don’t just tell you how, I actually stick a barbed #2 hook in my leg and then remove it. To make it even more interesting, it was shot at 1500 frames per second, so you won’t miss a thing. It should go without saying, but don’t try this at home.

Thanks to Loren Ekart for filming and editing. Also, thank you to Phil Monahan at Orvis for your support and helping promote the video.
