I recently read the following: "It's very important to remove the hook before cooking and eating the fish.... If you cook the hook, the layer of lead that coats the hook will melt into the fish..." (https://www.wikihow.com/Unhook-a-Fish)
I'm familiar with lead in weights and solder joints, but do hooks often contain a lead coating as well?
edit: I ask this because, for ecological and child-safety reasons, I avoid tackle containing lead. I'd like to know if I should investigate my plain old j-hooks more closely.
I have no intention to cook a fish with the hook in :)
