Fishing barbless will make you a better fisherman. You have to fight the fish smart and cannot allow slack into the line during the fight. That said, you will lose fish from time to time but I have fish throw barbed flies too so I think in the end its just a little easier on both fisherman and fish to use barbless. I fish barbless most of the time except when I'm chasing large fish and want every advantage I can get...
