Here's a couple of Vids' - one after the other, the 2nd one shows how with a deeper hooked fish.

 

Some Anglers, myself included, sometimes forget to twist the line around the handle.

 

Never hurts to refresh. AND a good one for Newbies!!   :marinheiro:

It amuses me how many get flustered when trying in my presence as i check their permits lol
If your going to catch some poxy 4" perch with a hook halfway through its guts its always when someones watching
I still prefer my old aluminium slot disgorgers the modern version have the slot on the wrong side if that sounds right ,you can turn them round but they still dont feel right

Believe NOTHING anyones says or writes unless you witness  it yourself and even then your eyes can deceive you

 

There is only one opinion i listen to ,its mine and its ALWAYS right even when its wrong

 

Its far easier to curse the darkness than light one candle

I prefer the Slamo style disgorger, with smaller hooks especially as it holds the point against the plastic as you remove it from the mouth. Still a bugger removing hooks from your earlobe though, even if you are using barbless :doh:

Mines was from a small tackle shop when they first came out. They had the exceed logo on them as a gel/rubber type sticker.

I lost one and broke the other (very thin tipped one and in my pocket it snapped, seen it coming)

Got my replacment from glasgow angling centre (just around the corner) obviously the cheeper version no gel sticker logo thingy and plastic/lines from the mould proccess visible but still an excellent disgorger imo

I like the ordinary drennan disgorgers. 

Andy, you don't need to do that wraping round with the line with any disgorger,  no idea why the say you should do that, it's just gonn'a damage your line.

All,

 

I'll get me box of bandaids out for all the flack I'll catch.

 

The ONLY purpose of a degorger is to save your rig.  Ninety percent of deep hooked fish die.  Of that 90% if you really want to try to save the fish, especially carp, you must use ferrous hooks and cut the line.  Perhaps you can save - ohh 10% of the 90%.

 

Ferrous hooks last no longer that 7 days before rusting out, a far shorter time than it takes for the fish to starve assuming the bladder hasn't been damaged.

 

Once deep hooked you can't do the fish any favors.  Harvest it for the cat.

 Disgorgers aren't only used for deep hooked fish Phone, they are a better tool than your fingers for extracting a hook at the back of a fishes mouth. You forget that we often use hooks too small for you yanks to see, so even a pair of forceps are often too big for the job. Hooks that we would call 'mid-sized', such as a 16, 14, 12, are minute compared to the ones you lot use. 

 I do agree that with a very deeply hooked fish, it is better to cut the line as near to the hook as possible, than to poke around blindly with a disgorger.

 

I'll add that you might like to watch this video,

 

John.

Angling is more than just catching fish, if it wasn't it would just be called 'catching'......... John

Gozzer,

  

Tochue - I do forget you fish for dinks with very small hooks.  I don't own a fish hook smaller than a #10.  My "go-to" standard is between size #1 and #1/0  My comments, indeed, apply to larger hooks.  Even with my "selections" I more frequently than not use "something" to remove the hook.

 

The video is a joke. Even as an advertising tool.  A bottle of drinking water in no way replicates conditions of deep hooking or for that matter lip hooking.  FYI, at 72f in neutral ph water a #1 ferrous Eagle Claw wire hook will rust out in 4 days.  Forged hooks and non-ferrous (ie nickel or stainless) much longer - if at all.
