Single Hook Barbless Spinners -- Top Choices for 2021
Fly-fishing is not an approach for those who lack patience and time to learn how to cast correctly. The expense notwithstanding, fly-fishing is certainly not for everyone.
Children, in particular, are ill-suited to fly-fishing. Most of the children introduced to the sport of angling and catch and relief fishing are better served with standard spinning gear for a few different reasons:
1. It is easier to learn how to cast.
2. Cast, and retrieve keeps their interest high.
3. The opportunities of catching fish is much greater on standard tackle.
Children are not limited to standard spin gear and tackle as anyone with an interest in fishing can use these lures with relative ease.
Sadly, finding these single hook barbless spinner lures is all but impossible. The vast number of these single hook lures have barbs. Fortunately, there are three options you have available:
1. Use pliers and push the barb down back onto the hook shank.
2. File the barb completely off with a small file.
3. Replace the hooks with a Barbless Hooks for Fishing.
Enough on this, however. Here are the ideal lures we have found.
