Quick & Easy Barbed Hooks to Barbless Hooks

Many waterbodies across North America are barbless hooks only meaning no barbs can be present on the hook while the hook or lure is being fished. Barbless hooks allow for easier catch & release of the fish which translates into safer and easier hook removal from the fish mouth. In many cases, it’s also safer and easier on the angler. Any angler that has had to remove a barbed hook from a part of their body knows what I’m talking about.
