Barbed hooks? What's your opinion?
Recently got some heat for displaying my infliction towards barbed hooks (and nets for that matter).
I thought it would be a great conversation to bring up, (and I'm just curious how alone I am with the issue).
Do you de-barb your hook, why or why not?
I think it's interesting that most parts of Canada have made barbed hooks illegal, yet I have never heard too much commotion about them within the States.
Love to hear everyone's opinion.
The fields are endless, but the cows never leave the river side, maybe it’s the fresh taste of a cold mountain runoff that keeps them close. Or perhaps they just like watching the fly fisherman cast their way down stream (like souls of fishermen past). A young calf looks at his mother, with a sideways curious expression “I love the feeling of mud running through my hooves.”
