No, a bit of common sense and awareness that sharp hooks and tubes don't mix is about all you need.

Returning or keeping sea fish

To get rid of fish quickly without damaging you or them - then follow this:

Tape the middle 3 fingers of 'strong' hand with insulating tape (not so tight as to stop circulation). When retrieving fish - grab back of hook with thumb and shake fish off - either into boat or back into water - your choice. Tape prevents hooks going into fingers and leaves scar free fishing. Did it commercially and works!

I have seen fishermen shakin them off the hook , but never managed it myself , surely it must rip them apart a bit , so not so good if you are throwing them back.
I often seem to end up with them wrapped up in the trace with line wrapped round the tails or hooks part swallowed . sometimes its easier to put a new trace of feathers on than sort the birds nest out .

A major problem with this method is your inability to stick the V sign up at fellow water users
