    Have a look at Glasgow Angling Centre Sakuma Chinu hooks. Small barb easily crimped down and nice shape.

    Try Nash Fang Gaper - available in both barbless and micro barb. Been using these for a few years now, recommend!
    In the moment, of the meantime.......

    E.S.P Raptor T-6 Barbless for me, use them in Russia and at home when the river is full of leaves.

    Have alook at the kamasan carp range of hooks. They do a barbless but I use the barbed and crimp it as it is a micro barb, I use the standards and x heavy gauge, inexpensive, good value and reliable.

    As said above. Carp fishing hooks are way to go. Never going to straighten on you and lots cheaper if you choose kamasan or drennan. The korda and fox ones will be more but still spot on.

    Another vote for carp hooks. Strong and cheap. How I like my drinks (and women!)

    Not allowed doubles on c&r rivers in ireland. Otherwise I would prefer double/ trebles.
