Did it to myself last summer while night fishing out of my toon at Pueblo...caught a jig in my chest when it came off a snag. snipped the line...finished fishing and stopped at loaf and jug on the way home. Asked the clerk to help...no go. Drove home and woke my son..using the method pistol mentioned...it came out slick as a whistle...no pain at all.I have seen that technique but I could not figure out a way to do that one handed and did not have anyone available to help. Tried just clamping it in hemostats and down and out but no luck.
