If medical help is not
available and the fishhook is deeply embedded in the skin, try the
advance-and-cut method. Push the hook the rest of the
way through the skin, snip off the barb with wire cutters, and remove the rest
of the fishhook from where it entered the skin. If medical help is available,
have a deeply embedded fishhook removed by a doctor or nurse.
