Can someone post some links to some "GOOD BARBLESS HOOKS" It seems on the west side (wet side) shops do not carry very many dry fly hooks let alone a selection of good barbless hooks with maybe a longer point. I fish both ways since I fish so many put and take lakes. If I actually fished small streams for small trout I would never use a barbed hook. But I chose to not even hook those smaller stream native fish and haven't for about 25 years. I have no need to catch 8 to 12 inch native fish and have to handle them. Like mentioned, handling to me has everything to do with it. larger trout nets so the fish can remain up-right and relaxed covered in water while you are getting a hold of the hook with fingers or pliers helps a lot of fish. Many times when I'm pinching down barbs I will notice sometimes the barb doesn't get pinched all the way. And what ever happened to the dry fly hooks that had a wire above the hook to tie may-fly tails on? maybe someone can help all of us and post a link for "good barbless hooks" thanks in advance. Yeah I'm being lazy today and should just look for a link myself on this damn computer but figure some of you have already been researching this and settled on a place with good hooks at a good price.
