Barbless Doubles
« on: October 03, 2012, 12:53:47 PM »
I may well be slightly behind the curve but I've just had an order delivered through the post for some Code QY Partridge barbless doubles.  Look exactly the same as the size eight barbed I've got but barbless.  I'll feel less guilty about suicidal brownies about 4" long hammering my Silver Stoat if I can unhook them more easily and hopefully quickly too. 

On a slightly separate note does anybody know if you can get barbless doubles for tubes?  I squash the barbs with a plies but really prefer a barbless hook as I've had quite a few hooks snap near where the barb was (probably because I'm being too savage with the pliers). 

Cheers

Matt
