Any recommendations for a reliable hook for Grayling fishing I use a grain of sweetcorn or double maggot this fishing on EA freestretch so should be barbless what is the best size ? Using 16 or 18 at the moment.

Cheers

I'd go with a kamasan animal in 14's. You say barbless but i've found a micro barbed (which is what animals are) are best, although they do come barbless also. Drennan super spades are another one I use, only difference between them being the colour and the super spades are a smidge smaller in the same size stated.

I always use Micro or whisker barb spade end hooks generally size 14,but,16 as well.Never really worried about the make,but, I did like Kamasan B525.


Fishing seems to be my favorite form of loafing.

"Even a bad day of fishing is better than a good day of work."

I know the joy of fishes in the river through my own joy, as I go walking along the same river.

What do you think if the float does not dip, try again I think.

All,

 

Never fished for European grayling.  Canadian, #10 barbless for quick release.  Only fish I recommend barbless.  Yes, I believe it costs me a few fish - but

Yep' Barbless for me also - can't count the time spent getting stray barbed hooks out of clothes, shoe laces etc.

I use Kamasan B983 Wide Gape Specialist for Corn and Mustad Black Nickle Long Point LP280 for maggot - both in a 16 ( both microbarbed).
