Replacement Barbless Hooks

Replacement Barbless Hooks are necessary if you fish in the growing number of areas that allow spin fishing but require barbless hooks. Some areas require single hooks. Cover both bases with these replacement barbless hooks.

Also called "single hooks" or "replacement single hooks," they are available barbed as well as barbless, and they are available for spoons and for plugs.

Replacement single hooks intended for spoons have horizontal eyes. The hook on a spoon is attached with a split ring, and the horizontal eye on a single hook for spoons will orient the hook properly. When replacing treble hook with a single hook on a spoon, attach the hook so that the hook points up when the convex side of the spoon faces down, as shown in the following photo.

When retrieved slowly, a spoon will wobble rather than spin, and the convex side of the spoon will face downwards most of the time. That causes the hook to face upwards most of the time, greatly reducing the chance of getting snagged on a rock or log.

Replacement single hooks for plugs have vertical eyes to orient the hook properly with the plug. The tail hook should point up. There is a difference of opinion on whether the front hook should point forward or backward. Forward will give more positive hook sets, but also increases the chance that a plug will get snagged on a rock or a log.

Please note: when replacing treble hooks with single hooks on plugs, be sure that the two single hooks cannot get caught on each other. If you replace both trebles with single hooks on a 50mm plug, use the S-55M size 10 hooks. If you wish to use size 6 or size 8 hooks, remove the front treble hook and replace the rear hook with a single hook.





 For those who want to replace treble hooks with single hooks, but do not want to go barbless, C'ultiva has single barbed hooks.

The Daiwa Presso "Speed" SS Single Barbless Hooks are the same hooks that come with the Daiwa Vega and Lupin spoons (size 8) and Adam spoons (size 6). They're not just sharp, they are really, really sharp! When you handle the spoons you have to be very careful - and it's a very good thing that the hooks are barbless! The "Multi Plugging" hooks have vertical eyes for use with plugs. (If you add a second split ring, you can use the Speed hooks with plugs.)

The Speed hooks penetrate very, very easily, but they are very light wire. I have had reports of breakage on large fish. If you fish in waters where you may hook large fish, especially if there is strong current, I would recommend the C'ultiva SBL35 hooks instead. I have not had any reports of them breaking.

The SS stands for SaqSas Plating Technology. I think of it as standing for Scary Sharp!
