Default Re: Avoid Injury, Go Barbless - by Casey Allen

The info on barbless hooks is right on, as are the warnings against drunken brawling.

One thing that wasn't mentioned was the fact that hooks with flattened barb penetrate the fish's mouth better. Hooks that penetrate deeply will stay in the fish's mouth much better than a barbed hook that is not sunk in past the barb. This is assuming the hook point is sharp enough to penetrate well.

I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.
