What are Barbless Jig Hooks?
Barbless Jig hooks tend to hook Trout in the top or corner of the mouth, and as such, you land more fish with them. An often-overlooked feature of jig hooks is their potential to fit a range of bead sizes on each hook size. Jigs have been an important part of conventional fishing for many years, and their effectiveness is well known in both fresh and saltwater situations (read our saltwater jig heads review to learn more). In fly fishing, the use of jigs is relatively new.
Aquatic habitats are home to countless species of fish and invertebrates. Most of these invertebrates are consumed as food, while others are harvested for economic reasons (e.g. oysters that produce pearls used in jewelry). All over the world, in many diverse cultures, seafood is seen as an important source of protein and healthy fats.
People have fished to feed families and local communities. This demand for seafood worldwide, along with advances in technology, has led to fishing practices that are depleting fish and shellfish populations around the world. Fishing practices remove more than 77 billion kilograms (170 billion pounds) of wildlife from the sea every year. This has bred fear in scientists that continuing to fish at this rate may soon result in a collapse of the world’s fisheries. Sustainable fishing exists as a way for us to regulate these practices and to continue relying on the ocean as an important food source.
