Whilst debarbing over the winter, the Spey Fishery Board have asked for all flies to be barbless, I was struck by just how few doubles I have.

Most of my flies are trebles, I think an Ali Shrimp looks lovely on a size 16, esecially with a long tail.

Gardner mentioned the levering effect and I beleive that this levering is predominant with doubles. So in answer to your question, singles rather than doubles.
