Author Topic: Barbed hooks

Hey folks

I was reading some articles on the productivity of local lakes on another website and it mentioned that you can only use 'single hooks' in all lakes in BC. Not really believing this I googled it and found all kinds of conflicting data regarding what type of hooks you can use in BC lakes, none of it official. Figuring there were probably others that were confused I went to the regs and actually found this statement on page 9

Use barbed hooks or a hook
with more than one point in any
river, stream, creek or slough
in B.C.
(Note: the use of barbed
hooks or hooks with more than
one point is permitted in lakes,
unless noted in the Regional
Water-Specific Tables)"

Being a treble hook, flatfish troller, I was happy to see this. Hope it helped anyone else similarily confused.
