Bob - would circle hooks help in situations that you describe?[/quote]

Having had a wealth of experience of circle hooks in saltwater I have tried them successfully for trout and pike.Circles are meant for bait but will take trout on small hooks tied as buzzers and bloodworms.Might work in Bob's scenario but inevitable slack/bow in the line could be the downfall.No doubt would work back drifting.I have caught well on circles for trout but no normal lifting into the fish as have to let them come tight and virtually hook themselves so need to be in touch.Release is a fiddle.Takes more attention to remove circle hooks from average size reservoir trout.

Best. JP
