So you hooked a bird while fishing. Embarrassing yes, but lets not cut the line loose expensive lure , braided line and end up killing the bird as well.
Getting them off the line is much easier than you would think.
Reel the bird in slowly.
Cover the head up with a shirt or towel to keep them calm and protect you as well.
Wear sunglasses to protect your eyes, and control the head first.
Use pliers to dehook and unravel the line.
Never cut the line and let them fly away this is a sure why for the bird to die a slow death when the line gets caught up in branches and structure later.
