Barbless Discussion From A New Member

There seems to be no where to go for professional grade barbess tackle

Not true - you can get barbless hooks (Tiemco, Daiichi, Mustaad, etc.) at Feathercraft, T.J.Hargroves, Cabela's, BassPro, and lots of other mail order stores like J.Stockard.

If you are going to try to plug your specific website, you could at least not try to justify your shameless plug with a total mis-statement!

I look in my fly box and think about what should guide my choice of the best fly: the amount/angle of sun on the water, the water temp & clarity, what bugs are hatching, what the fish might be eating, and what worked last time. Then I remember what an old man told me... " Ninety percent of what a trout eats is brown, fuzzy, about 1/2 inch long and underwater."

Thanks for the input. I did not see any barbless lures or crankbaits on these sites. Are you saying that they only sell barbless fly hooks? You mean if I want to use these sites I have to build my own barbless flies and lures?

www.ouchlesslures.com only sells barbless crankbaits, spoons, spinners etc...

Lot of ready-to-fish barbless flies are for sale at all the well-known fly shops and fly websites. Looks like your site also sells barbless flies.

I routinely make my non-fly fishing lures barbless - just take a pair of forceps and about 2 seconds per hook, and presto....instant barbless!
