On Facebook yesterday, the guys at Gink & Gasoline posted how they came across a poor unhooking video recently. Not sure which one they’re referring to, but I’m glad that they reposted this video they made from 2012. This is one of those “I’m glad I know this now, but I hope I never have to use it” pieces of information. All the more reason to use barbless hooks, I suppose.
As it turns out, the guys from Jazz and Fly Fishing also made a hook removal video back in 2010. Same technique … but in a Finnish accent for your enjoyment.
