The Gamakatsu Octopus Barbless Hooks are octopus style hooks without a barb designed to meet barbless regulations found in some regions. This hook has all the qualities of the standard Gamakatsu Octopus hook, but now without the barb. Gamakatsu designed these hooks to meet the needs of anglers who fish in bodies of water with hook regulations that prohibit the use of barbed hooks. Generally, the restrictions are put in place to aid catch and release efforts as barbed hooks can be difficult to remove and possibly increase the chance of fish mortality.
We offer the Gamakatsu Octopus Barbless Hooks in three colors: NS Black, Nickel and Red in 13 sizes: #4 - 5/0 (All Colors), 6/0 - 10/0 (Nickel Only). The quantity of each pack varies, please see description.
