Better for the fish and easier to remove from your face

Starting New Year’s Day, anglers will be required to use barbless hooks until further notice when fishing for salmon, steelhead and cutthroat on a large section of the Columbia River.

The rule issued yesterday by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) will affect sport fisheries from the mouth of the Columbia River – including the north jetty – upstream to the state border with Oregon, 17 miles upstream from McNary Dam.

Barbs are for noobs. If you consider yourself a good angler you don't need a barb!
