UK’s ‘Most Wanted’ now available throughout Europe: G-Barbless

By Team Gamakatsu

For 2016 Gamakatsu comes with a brand new series of barbless hooks for specialists. Most powerful characteristics are the extremely sharp and sticky hook points and the fact that they are incredibly strong.

G Barbless 01 577
Extremely strong and sharp

The models that were chosen are based on UK’s most wanted and from now available throughout the whole of Europe. Fishing with barbless hooks is quite a common thing in the UK and outside the UK anglers start to use barbless hooks more and more.

Fishing with barbless hooks has 2 big advantages; it makes unhooking easier and hooks are significantly stronger when produced without barb. The G-Barbless range contains 3 models: the Wide Gape Maggot, the Gama Black and the All Round.
Wide Gape Maggot
This bronze coloured hook with medium-long shank and flatted eye is very versatile. Smaller sizes are perfect for live bait such as casters, maggots and worms. Larger sizes can be used perfectly with corn, meat and pellets. Thanks to its relatively thin wire it is light weight, without losing its strength.

G Barbless 02 577

The long, slightly in-turned hook point has been chemically sharpened and stays incredibly sharp for a long time. Ideal to use on public waters and on commercial lakes with carp and F1’s. Packed per 15 and available in sizes 18 to 10.

Gama Black
This NS Black hook with flatted eye has been specially developed for silvers and roach. The thin wire allows a natural presentation of baits such as maggots, casters and bloodworms. The reason of its popularity is simple; thanks to the material and design it maximizes safe landing of fish when fishing very light. Especially on commercial lakes this simply and often implies the difference between winning and losing.

G Barbless 03 577

This chemically sharpened hooks penetrates easily and offer maximum hold thanks to its slightly in-turned point. Ideal to use on commercials and public waters. Available in sizes 22 to 16 and packed per 15 pcs.

All Round
Based on the Gamakatsu LS-1310, which is probably the most well-known hook amongst coarse fishermen. From now on this model is available in a barbless version in the G-Barbless series carrying the name ‘All Round’. It is the perfect choice for club fishermen up to the most demanding competition anglers. The relatively long shank and flatted eye in nickel allows easy and quick unhooking of fish.

G Barbless 04 577

The nice round shape of the hook bend is perfect for any kind of bait and makes it an incredibly strong hook. The straight and chemically sharpened hook point offers great hold and is perfect for use on commercial lakes with carp and F1’s. Of course the All Round can also be used perfectly on public waters. Packed per 15 pcs. and available in sizes 20 to 12.
