How It Works..

The hook cylinder rotates the hook 200 degrees, reversing the direction of the hook and barb allowing it to be dislodged from the stomach. It can then be removed from the fish without the barb re-engaging the fish’s tissue.

Directions FOR USE:

​1. Insert the shank of the fishhook into the slot of the cylinder at the tip of the Hook Remover.

2. Pull the trigger to rotate the hook

3. If the hook does not rotate freely, press the tip of the hook remover gently in towards the fish’s stomach and slightly rotate your hand or the fish.

SWALLOWED FISHHOOK REMOVER

$39.95

If you are fishing in a catch and release area or if you have caught an undersized fish, the main goal is to swiftly release the fish live. The Swallowed Fishhook Remover safely removes a swallowed hook without further damage to the fish and it’s simplicity and ease of use significantly reduces the time the fish spends out of the water. Since many hooks are made of metals that don’t rust, cutting the line and leaving the hook in the fish can impede the fish’s ability to eat and make them unable to swallow their prey. The sharp hook is also exposed and can puncture other vital organs. Cutting the hook also entails time spent retying a hook, lost equipment and reduced time spent fishing.

The pace of life is slow and with fishing, hunting, bird watching, and boating opportunities all around, you can’t help but get outside.

Our goal is to provide you with quality products, designed and tested by outdoorsmen and women, that do just what we say they do. As our flagship product, we’re excited to bring you our swallowed fishhook remover. Tested by avid fishermen and women, we believe it will bring you piece of mind knowing that you can quickly and easily remove a swallowed hook without killing the fish.

So, here’s to your next catch! …and, if necessary, it’s release…ALIVE.

Meet The Inventor

Carl Wilson spent more than 30 years as a state and federal game warden. During that time, he frequently encountered anglers who kept undersized fish after being unable to remove a swallowed hook without killing the fish. They chose to keep the dead fish, risking a citation, rather than throwing it back. An avid fisherman himself, who is also married to a biologist, Carl set out to find a solution that would not only save the fish but do it quickly and easily. Not finding anything on the market, he created the Hynes Bay Swallowed Fishhook Remover. Now he won’t go fishing without it.
