Hook Removal - String Yank Wrap a string such as a piece of monofilament fishing line around the bend of the hook. Get a good grip on the string. The involved skin area should be well stabilized against a flat surface as the shank of the fishhook is depressed against the skin. Continue to depress the eye of the hook, taking care to keep the shank parallel to the underlying skin.
A firm, quick jerk is then applied parallel to the shank while continuing to exert pressure on the eye of the hook. See also: Advance and Cut method.
