    Great Technique. I learned this about 15 years ago and it works great.

    As a lodge owner/operator I have used this technique on myself and others. The large shark hook was very impressive I hope I never have to witness or participate in that one. This technique will not in my experience work with an off set hook and that is why I switched to inline hooks for my trailer hooks.

    Haven't done a 9/0, but I've done a couple 6/0's, and it works great. They are right about commitment... go half way, and it really, really hurts, and the hook doesn't come out.

    I think the most important part is to hold the eye of the hook down forcing the barb and point to protected from biting into more flesh on the way back out. This is why the off set hook won't come out as painlessly...

    I've had this preformed on me by a friend - it works.

    George - just wondering - if the eye of the offset hook was adjusted (held at an angle to compensate for the offset) would that have an effect? If the barb was just under the skin, it seems like you should still be able to get a pretty straight pull against it.

    The reason I ask is in this other instructional they even have an important side note to make sure you place the thread up higher in the bend of the hook and to pull up, very different from the other video.http://www.bishfish.co.nz/articles/general/hookout.htm

    Much depends on the location of the puncture. Sometimes it is easier to push it through, cut off the barb and then back out. I did a 3/4" one time that went into the thumb knuckle. It took the doc 4 hours to figure that one out and a lot of those little pain injection needles.

    You would think pushing the hook through and cutting the barb was not to hard to do but I will tell you based on experience the human skn is very elastic and even with a razor sharp hook it is VERY difficult to get it to punch through. As far as line placement (below or above bend) the big thing is holding down the eye during the pull. Commit to the pull, if you pull like a chick your partner will scream like one. I have confidence in this technique as do many others. The red flags being hooks in the eyes, ears, lips and deep punctures that hit tendons especially in the fingers or hands. I put needles into people every day and have a lot of field and Emergency Room research to back this procedure. Thanks for watching and safe fishing.
