I've never seen it, I'll have to look into it and tie a few up just to try it.

I was given a Fly Fisherman Magazine and it talked about this new (to me anyway) catch and release system. Essentially the fly or flies have no hook but are attached up the leader. When a fish takes the fly the fisherman sets the hook, and is snagged in the side of the mouth by small, barbless, specially designed catch and release hook. According to the article the system was tested for years on thousands of fish caught, and mortality rates were far greater since the fish seldom is hooked in sensitive areas, and the release is very quick. Have any of you seen or fished with this system? Or tied flies for it?
