you cant fish with one-a those maybe if you got way lucky you could hook afish but it would slide off. theirs no barb

you dont need barb u just have to sharpen it

what keeps the fish on the hook then?

your good tug

when the fish bites the hook it starts to go away from you then the hook will still stay on the fish

if u but bait on it they swallow it being the dumb fish they are and you pull it up having it hooked hopefull on the lip or on the mouth somewhere

deansep (author)2007-09-15

But then you would cut your self.

shadow12952 (author)2007-08-11

actually i catch fish w/ paper clips all the time but i sharpen them w/ a file. i use this but tie fishing line and corn as bait and its easy to catch them
