If anglers would only crimp the barbs on your hooks, surgery or hook removal by the captain would not be necessary. Long ago I was informed that the only reason the hook companies put a barb on the hook was to keep the bait on. Since then (nearly 30 years) I don’t remember loosing a fish because of no barb. Even if you do loose a fish, so what! Especially if your fishing in a foreign country and wouldn’t want to interrupt your trip to go to a hospital.
This is better for the fish and your body. You’ll also learn to keep proper pressure on the fish.
Try it!

Don't let this be you!
