in over a year have only seen 1 fish bleed
far cheaper than cutting off hooks all the time
note it has to be the timber chop stick not the plastic one
the hook has to stick in the chop stick to alow the hook to come out of the fish
and not rehook it


yea great way to unhook the flats alri esp when your getttin 3 a cast eh haha oj i would know about catchin trebble shots :P ... i bought a full length of 8mm dowell cut it up as disgorgers or the artists paint brush all works well :D

Brilliant idea! When using really small hooks in a comp i just use a fresh water disgorger but this is ideal when using bigger stuff
