Debarbing Hooks

In this fly tying tutorial, I explain two methods that I employ when debarbing hooks. These are based on the type of vise that you use, and both are explained during the video. I prefer to debarb hooks prior to tying, and encourage all of you to do the same. Though hooks with barbs do have a place in fishing, catch and release is the preferred style for me and many others; fishing with barbless hooks aligns with this style and is my recommendation for all to use.

The GFF money box

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
