    What part of impaling the jaw of a fish with a sharp metal object and fighting it to the point of lethal exhaustion explicitly for your own amusement you think the fish prefers better? Please don’t be an idiot.

    I always understood (and still do) that the barbs were to keep bait from getting off. Makes sense.

    Barbless hooks are far worse than barbed ones, at least with barbs the hook doesnt slip in and out resulting in numerous holes in the fishes mouth.

    Barbs were originally intended to hold bait not the fish on.

    Wow! I must say: a lot of you must be a pleasure to be around.

    Take a post that is obviously intended to amuse and people either get butthurt or argumentative.

    I hate a snob. So if you’re one please block me so I don’t have to be reminded that we need another great flood
