School Notes

Take with you fishing (or have nearby, such as in your car) a first-I aid kit (containing I bandages, antiseptic, antibiotic I cream, topical painkiller, aspirin ' or acetaminophen, and the like). Include special medication, extra eyeglasses,, and other personal items.

The second method sounds too easy to work, but it does: Make a foot-long loop of strong fishing line (double the line if it's 10 pound test or less) by tying together the ends of a 2-foot section. Put the knotted end around your wrist and bring the rest of the loop up against your palm and hold it between your thumb and forefinger. Slide the end of the loop over the hook shank so it's lying against the bend. Then push down and backward on the hook shank (this is important) with one hand while jerking the line sharply back with your other hand. The hook will pop free. Clean, disinfect, and bind the wound.

Remove an embedded fishhook by passing a loop of fishing line around the hook and pulling sharply while pressing down and back on the hook shank.
