Default Re: Why barbless?

Not only is it better on the fish to a degree its also easier on the fly! Nothing gets my goat more than mashing a hackle trying to dig a barbed hook out. Not to mention put one in your own skin on a bad cast and you'll be wishing you had pinched the barb! As far as industry goes in regards to felt vrs rubber in comparison its alot easier to pinch a barb than replace felt.
