Fish O, Like everything else, there are pliers, tools, and some really interesting gadgets you can use to remove the fly from a fishes mouth. No matter what which you use, if you grasp the hook in the bend, you will do less damage to the fly in this operation. I think that the tool you use is dictated on the fly and size of hook used. For smaller hooks, a pair of forceps work well, but with larger flies and hooks, a pair of needle nose pliers or a hook remover will give you a better grip and do less damage to the fish and the fly.
