    You can either use a filter wrench, if you can find one, if not, you can try other methods like:

    Tying a rubber band over the filter for more friction,
    Using a rubber mat or silicone mat with good friction on the table, put lens face down (with filter) on the mat, then press down firmly and twist,
    or lastly, cool it in the fridge as the last resort.

    I think I will try this the next time....my CPL have the tendency to get stuck on my lens. But still can't be sure if my fingers is griping on the inner frame or outer frame, the slim cpl is really slim....esp for my fat fingers.

    Usually for me it helps just to rotate the CPL ring counterclockwise. Gives enough friction to loose the CPL from the lens.
    TS: UV filters stuck are a good sign to drop them completely. They have no function anyway (apart from that feeling well about supposedly protecting the lens) but whenever you use CPL, other filters or at night they are redundant and need to be removed.
