The Hayabusa Fishing Fly 354 Barbless Dry Nymph Hook enflames an old debate – barbed fly fishing hooks versus barbless fly fishing hooks. There are pros and cons to any fishing hooks design, and this is especially true for barbless fly fishing hooks. Many fly fishermen prefer barbless fly fishing hooks because there is a lower fish mortality rate associated with barbless fishing hook designs, in addition to quicker catch-and-release practices. This particular barbless fly fishing hook is designed for nymph fly topwater action – some of the most exciting fly fishing available to fishermen. Designed with a standard shank and standard wire, this dry fly fishing hook is sharpened for successful fly fishing that does less overall damage to fish.

Fly 354 – Barbless Dry Nymph Hook – Fly Fishing Hook
Hayabusa Fishing believes in conservation, taking care of our fisheries, and ensuring protection of all fish populations. Though many fishermen pursue fishing from a hobby, recreation, and/or competitive standpoint, agreement exists on how fisheries and fish should be treated for the preservation of fishing as a sport and/or hobby. This is why fishing licenses are so incredibly important, as most US states use license sales to support local and state game economies. In terms of fly fishing, there is some debate on barbless fly fishing hooks versus barb fly fishing hooks. It is 100% accurate to state that barbless fly fishing hooks do far less damage to fish caught, but it also means some fish come off of hooks. In terms of competitive side of fishing, losing fish for any reason is definitely a negative result. However, for the recreational fly fishermen, losing a fish, though bothersome, isn’t the end of the world. The Fly 354 – Barbless Dry Nymph Hook is one example of Hayabusa Fishing’s innovative barbless fly fishing hook designs. Anglers who want a challenge (it is more difficult to catch fish with barbless fishing hooks) while also doing less damage to fish will prefer this standard shank, standard wire barbless fishing hook. As with other Hayabusa Fishing products, a sharp hook point and hook durability are two central features.
