Poor selection, insanely exorbitant prices, what's a guy on a fixed income to do? I don't have a Dremel tool to grind barbs off. Whiskey tango FOXTROT???

Can't you just pinch them shut with a needle-nose pliers or cut them with a wire cutter?

It was suggested I use a hemostat but I need one with flat face.

Any kind of long nosed pliers as Jerdon suggested.  You can easily pinch the barb almost flat. I did it for years when fishing fresh water for trout and small mouth.  I just pinched them down at home when I opened the pack.  This passed muster in locales that required barbless hooks. I wouldn't think hemostats would be strong enough to do larger hooks.

You can get barbless hooks at Fly Shops, and I don't recall that they cost any more than conventional hooks, but could be mistaken.  May not be available in larger sizes.  Don't know.

I had to look up inline hooks as I didn't know what they were. So these are mainly for lure hooks? What sizes do you use?

A basic dremel is $25 plus you need the chain saw sharpening stone. It's a small diameter stone about 1" long. This is the cheapest way in the long run.

I grind all my barbs for ME not the fish. Ground comes out of my arm easier than pinched.

I use [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] or [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] as I mostly fish for trout.

It shall be done. Yes, I'm replacing barbed treble hooks with single barbless. If I'm meat hunting (fishing for a meal) I'll use barbed, but if I'm just fishing for the fun, I want to be able to release them with as little damage as possible.

Let's not forget, trout were born to die. I gave one the hairy eyeball, and he went belly up, immediately. But seriously, trout are a lot more fragile than any member of the sunfish family.
