The Gamakatsu Octopus Barbless Circle Hooks are circle style hooks with an inline point designed to meet circle and barbless regulations found in some regions. This hook has all the qualities of the standard Gamakatsu Octopus Circle Inline Point hook, but now without the barb. Gamakatsu designed these hooks to meet the needs of anglers who fish in bodies of water that have hook regulations that allow only circle style, inline point hooks and prohibit the use of barbs. Circle hooks are known to be great for catch and release applications in both fresh and saltwater due to their affinity for hooking the jaw instead of gut-hooking fish. We offer the black nickel colors of the Gamakatsu Octopus Barbless Inline Circle Hook in three sizes: 3/0 - 5/0 each pack contains three, five, or six.
