I'm not sure if there's a name for the way I did it, but I just had to force the tip out of my arm from the inside, and when it was past the barb, I just cut the shank and pulled it out.

Man, way past the barb. Did you do the all the way through clip and then withdraw methode? This is how the fish feel.

Yeah, if you fish a lot, then this is BOUND to happen to you. I couldn't pull the hook out the same way that it entered, so I had to force the barb through the inside of my skin until it popped out.

Ouch. As a kid I did the jerk on a stuck rapala and it flew back, hit me in the eye. Lucky for me, it was the body not the hooks. Lesson learned, lived to tell the tale.

I've been there, Brad. I hooked myself in the side while fishing with daughter. I couldn't get it out so I tried to hide it from her until I could drop her off at home and go to the ER. Hope you are up-to-date on your tetanus booster.
