Hooking your finger has to be the only downside to fishing. No matter how long you’ve been fishing, you’re gonna hook your finger at some point. It’s unavoidable.

The hooked angler in question, in this case, is Chris, who was fishing at Bienville Plantation in White Springs, Florida, with his guide Ron Ryals. It’s a good thing that Chad Hoover was nearby so Ryals could troll over for a much-needed assist. We’ve shared a number of hook removals here lately, but this one hit a little closer to home than most…and we dig their shirts!

Check Hoover out in action as he shows off some serious hook-surgeon skills:
