    I once stood my rod against a tree at isaak walton whilst i had a size 10 wide gape hook in between my teeth tieing my knot and the rod fell over setting the hook in the bach of my mouth. i had to shout my mate over to unhook me obviously after he pissed himself.lol. Bit sore for a couple of days.

    such a gaping wound affraid Laughing did you get the VC for it
    or a clip round the lug from your mum for being daft Twisted Evil

    i actually prefer barbed as most of today's barbed hooks are in-fact micro barbed
    in my opinion barbless can do a lot of damage especially if the line goes a bit slack the hook hold can open up due to movement in and out with the change of pressure on and off when the line goes from tight to slack with no barb to stop the movement.
