I'm a big barbless proponent and I found these yesterday following a noted tiers SBS recipe recommendation. Hadn't heard of them before. They look good with a good price, so FWIW I thought I'd give them a try and also pass on the site info. Anyone using these? I'll do a review when I receive them and put them to use.

I've been fishing with Knapek hooks, and they're very similar to these.

I found that hook set is better with barbless Hooks and obviously the cath & release is more easy.

Those hooks are from Joe Mathis who also developed Bug Collars. A bunch of the tiers on "Fly Tying with Uncle Cheech" , on Facebook, are tying on those hooks. Joe used to have a site called "Fly Tying Recipes", started about nine years ago, which is no longer active... he will be adding a bunch of other hooks as they are developed...

The Bug Collars were released a while back and have been offered through Hareline Dubbin for several years now. I've never heard of this other company and I am guessing they are a knock-off of Bug Collars.

The website at Elk Trading Co. | Elk Trading Co. has Knapek Competition Czech Barbless hooks on sale at just $3.99 USD for a 25-pack. Their supplies are depleting, and some models and sizes are out of stock, but they're great at including one or two extra packs for free in your order! I've ordered from them many times, and the owner is great to deal with, a real gentleman: Elk Trading Co. | Elk Trading Co..
