Getting Unhooked : Painless Hook Removal

Ive been doing a great bit of small boat fishing lately and with that type of fishing comes the risk of getting hooked by a flying wad of feathers, fur, and a razor sharp hook. There are only two good ways in my opinion to get a hook out. My preferred method is to push the barb all the way through the skin and pinch or cut the barb out so that you can easily back the hook out.
There is however a better way, what I call the pull like hell method. Its definitely a more pain free way to remove a hook thats lodged in past the barb but unfortunately learning this through reading is not the best way to find out how to do this. Thankfully the boys over at one of my favorite blogs Gink and Gasoline made a video a while back and I thought I would share it with you so if you find yourself in this unfortunate situation you will know what to do. And remember, no bananas, don't step on a boat with your left foot, get tattoos, and look for black cats.
