Default Barbless Flies

Have just finished "removing" the barbs from my fly selection. Found that forceps, lighted bench top magnifying glass, Dremel tool with thin grinding disk and a steady hand will do a outstanding job of making the hooks "cotton ball" proof. Besides that it kills a few cold winter hours!

Forgot to mention that this worked down to a #18!
