"Decent" barbless hooks????

Recommended Posts

Off to France in July, Lake rule is barbless only.

Any recommendations for good ones. Bottom baits and pop ups preferably size 4, may go up to a 6.

Help much appreciated.

What Hooks do you normally use? Are these available in Barbless? If so I would stick with what you are confident in and I just like to add a bit of shrink tube to help keep the hook in place.

Could you not just crush the barb on your normal hook pattern. 👍

I looked at these a while back, when a certain venue allowed/recommended them. 

I posted on here! Only one reply! Said they were OK!

I'd consider buying a pack if I had to fish a barbless venue.

Made from high grade Japanese wire, the key improvement has been the introduction of a series of minute horizontal grooves on the inside of the specially designed arrow shaped hook point, where historically the barb would have been. These grooves allow the hook to hold securely in the fish’s mouth when pressure is applied, as the flesh presses into the grooves resulting in a firm hook hold with no slippage.

As soon as the pressure is removed the hook returns to a barbless format allowing for easy and safe removal. Simple but so very effective.

£5 for 10 hooks...not bad

The French fishery I'm on this June has a barbless rule, too. These hooks look ideally suited, I'll get some. Thanks.

Ian.

Good shout. Looking at these on Amazon now. £4.95 for 10. Might just order a pack of 4's and 6's.

Mine arrived this morning. First impressions are very (very) good. Nice size (some size 4's are like 2's) and the 6's will make an ideal hook for pop up rigs. Seem ultra sharp and a nice matt black colour too.

My lake allows barbed hooks, but I'm going to knock a few rigs up using these Gripz and see how I get on.

@smufter what hooks were you using before these and what was wrong with them buddy?

Was using bank tackle's curved shank barbed Yonny. Nothing wrong with them, just wanted to give these "gripz" barbless hooks a run out, as the lake we're fishing in France has a barbless only rule mate.

My "go to" blow back bottom bait rig, tied with the 4's. 

Not such an aggressive inturned eye as my usual hooks so had to incorporate aligners. On "looks" I'm 100%confident
