Hi all
Has anyone got any experience of using singles rather than trebles for piking; lures, spinners etc, I know drop shotting does entice pike and uses singles) but, I'm thinking about mainstream piking and considerations to reduce the risk of injury to fish and anglers and damage to landing nets etc.

For all my live and dead baiting I use double hooks.
Using a single hook (unless it's a really large one) I'm always a little concerned that the hook my be masked by the bait.
Double hooks are a doddle to remove compared to trebles and with the ryder style there's always a hook point free and not likely to be hidden by the bait.
