I met a fishermen last week and he showed me how he covers bunch of hooks without much tangles using straws. I thought it is a very good idea and want to share with other fishermen. While in the tackle box or on rails, sharp hooks always give problems especially when you have a bunch of hooks together. This simple method can protect hooks as well as from potential danger and the best thing is it cost nothing. :) You can choose differnt size straw for different size hooks.

Keep a small scissors handy for difficult ones that refuse to pull off. Thanks Kil.
Or you can jig with straw attached.
I've done it so many times by forgetting to get rid of transparent plastic cover on treble hooks. It made me crazy I couldn't hook up any while getting tons of bites. :) To make matters worse, bites were over when I realized I used jigs with covered hooks. :)

Shorten the straw some and it will make decent barbless hooks. Keep constant tight line on fish if u want to see color...focus focus, maintain pressure and then easy release. Get those thicker clear tubing for some serious barbless...pretty effective...

I used barbless hooks for GT and king salmon.
Surprisingly you don't lose many fish while fighting as long as you keep pressure.
