Coarse Hooks -
We recommend all anglers fish using barbless hooks. The advantage of using barbless hooks is that they are easy to remove and do not harm the fish as much as a barbed hook could. If you only have barbed hooks you can use a pair of pliers to crush down the barb.
I believe that barbs were initially introduced to stop the bait coming off and not to hold the fish on once hooked.
