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. The Octopus Barbless Hooks possess a forged construction that makes them incredibly strong and durable. These hooks are short shank with an upturned eye and an offset bend which make them very effective at hooking fish without need of any sort of hookset, just a bit of tension.
We offer the Gamakatsu Octopus Barbless Hooks 25pk in four sizes: #4, #2, #1 and 1/0 in the NS Black color. Quantity: 25pk.
