Re: Avoid Injury, Go Barbless - by Casey Allen
I learned the barbless or crushed barb thing the hard way...
When fishing nymphs, I always tie a tandem rig with the bottom fly hanging off the bend of the top flies hook. Usually I tie the tippet to the top fly and then hold that fly in my mouth so I can tie the second one to the end of the tippet. The problem this time though is that when I finished tying on the second fly, I forgot to spit the first one out of my mouth and started casting.
OH! LIPS ARE SENSITIVE!!!!
