I have been fishing barbless for quite a while and was reminiscing about some of the special barbless hooks of the past.

I recall this barbless hook that had an angled eye or a 90degree eye for lead heads the barb was like a chicane from the back straight of LeManns cirque de la sarthe. I added a horrible edited pic from my phone. if anyone knows what they were called, source or has some let me know.

thanks

    I doubt you will be able to find bigger than size 8, but the Competition 60Degree Barbless hooks, that look just like your picture before you changed it, are Awesome for fly fishing Euro or Tightline style. If you don't allow slack while playing the fish, they stick em good and hold em too.
