What do people tie cicadas etc on? Anybody use a barbless model? I tie all my nymphs on barbless but don't have a go-to model for a longer shank dry.

Try a "normal hook" and just crush the barb down. Works Just fine

Yeah - that's what I do. I still love a true barbless hook though!

I think Grip and maybe Hends may have TMC2302 equivalent which is barbless?

Thanks Johnno - I will check those out. Hadn't looked into Grip.
