We have posted lots of videos that show how to deal with a hook that’s buried in skin. First there was the sartorially resplendent Steve Edge‘s demonstration, then there was an awesome video that starts with a guy hammering the hook into his leg, then there was the one from Gink and Gasoline, and another from Rod + Rivet. So why do we need one more? Because we love the guys from Jazz and Fly Fishing.
Here, poor Tapani was unfortunate enough to attach a large streamer hook to his nose. Lucky for him, Håvard knows “the trick.” Of course, the real trick is to crimp the barb before you hook yourself (or someone else).

No humans were injured in the making of this video. Or maybe he was! ?
This is something every fly fisherman should know or fisherman for that matter. I wonder if it would work with treble hooks though that spin fisherman would use?
I have used this method a number of times and it works very well. An Emergency room doctor showed it to me. When faced with treble hooks or other multiple hook lures I cut up plsstic baits and cover all exposed hooks to prevent hooking the patient with other hoojs.
That was just plain hard to watch!
