Default Re: Why barbless?

It has always been my understanding that barbs were no more than to help hold bait on a hook. Why are they even there on fly hooks? I want to get fish unhooked as quickly as possible. Hard to do with a barb. Plus I don't ever want to worry about crossing lines into a barbless area (heavy fine). I tie barbless or pinch them all at the vice.
