The Compleat Angler Posted April 24, 2018 Report Share Posted April 24, 2018 Depends where the fish is hooked and what type of hook. If in the lip, I firt try to remove the hook with my fingers, if it won’t come out easily, I use forceps, if that doesn’t work, I just cut the hook with side cutters. If hooked in the scissors, it’s nearly always forceps, when they get hook in the scissors, although the hold in the cartilage can be very firm, it’s seldom deep. So the hook should come out with forceps. I’ve only rarely caught the odd carp that has been deep hooked, extreme care is needed when unhooking these type of hook holds.
