If you do lots of “catch and release” fly fishing you are aware of the advantages of barbless hooks. The main advantage, however, is that it will not hurt the fish and obviously its easier to remove the hook. BreamBugs has several barbless hooks to choose from. Here is a picture of my favorite barbless hook. Check out all of the different styles we have at: www.BreamBugs.com
Most fish are hooked in the mouth, which is largely cartilage. The fish is not hurt when hooked in this manner. That area has a minimal amount of blood flow and soft tissue. Barbless hooks are excellent and can be used in any lure with a little work to install them.
