    first attempt at modifying my small waddingtons to single hook, quite pleased with the output.  The barbel hook plus snap link seems to balance out nicely the replaced treble.  The micro barb is crushed in the vice.   Note to self read the hook packets next time.

    Hi Andy

    looks good. You can also use Stinger and intruder hooks if you tie in either brain or a wire loop. This allows you to replace andy damaged hooks as well.

    Another alternative id a single hook from Partridge with the loop of the hook being in line. I use the barbless ones The hook code is ILS/Y
