benji5857 Posted August 4, 2009 Report Share Posted August 4, 2009 This might sound like a stupid question to a lot of you but I have to ask to make sure I do things right. I have always fished venues that allow barbless hooks only but i would like try a new venue but they only allow barbed hooks. I have seen all the arguments with regard to barbed hooks vs barbless and so I understand why the fishery in question have imposed this rule. A lot of people seem to agree that barbed hooks cause less damage to the mouth but ONLY when people know what they are doing when they remove the hook. So here is my dilema, I have never had to remove a barbed hook before and yet it is clear that I will be if I fish this new venue so can anyone give me any tips? Maybe I will find it natural and easy but the last thing I want to do is hurt the fish. There must be techniques that peopl use to allow them to be removed easily? All comments welcome. salokcinnodrog and Alekseyka 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
