Providing rapid penetration without resistance from a barb or microbarb and easy un-hooking barbless hooks are much better for our sport and for fish. No lip damage from barbs and rapid release are insisted on by many of the top fisheries and this is becoming mandatory. As long as pressure is kept on the fish you should not have problems with fish unhooking themselves by mistake and good fishermen should see no difference, indeed it makes our sport much easier with a rapid release of fish.
