I have now pretty much converted to tying all my flies on barbless hooks with the range available from Fulling Mill being a firm favourite.
The barbless nymph hooks come in packs of 50 and in sizes 14 to 8. This down-eyed hook comes in two different colours – black nickel (pictured) and bronze. The long shank makes this an ideal hook for those big nymphs and standard lures.
It has a 15 per cent longer point designed for a better hook-hold and the increased wire thickness gives the hook that extra strength. I’ve been using the size 10 for lures such as the Apps and Cat variations and the size 12 for my Crunchers and Diawl Bachs, and so far I’ve been pretty impressed!
