Don't Pinch the barb on this one

Ronn Lucas, maker of fine freestyle flies and fine hooks must be getting a bit bored. Check out this hook he made with a barb on the outside of the bend.

 Outside Barbed Hook

I can honestly say I’ve never seen anything quite like this before. Ronn also mentions the Van Vleck hooks which were done in a similar style, only they had a double bard rather than a single, so the frog didn’t slip off. lol The Van Vleck hooks were often used for fishing pike , musky and walleye.
