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
Here are a few reasons to use barbless hooks: better hooksets, barbs create resistance and makes it harder for the hook to penetrate, the fish are easier to release, if the line breaks its easier for the fish to shake a barbless hook loose, there is less injury to the fish and THERE IS LESS INJURY TO YOU!
