they claim approval from California DFW.  I would double check before actually using them for sure.

This is on their website, and famed fishing journalist David Hurley tells me it "looks legit."

the hooks look decent and they're not really any difference in price than some others. i might have to try the sickle style out sometime.

That’s got to be legit. Nobody outside of government would write something as stupid as “California Department of Fish and Wildlife (Department)”. Trust me on this, as I’ve worked for the government for most of my career.

A lawyer wrote that.  That is a standard thing for a lawyer to write.  Now when he wants to refer to the California Department of Fish and Wildlife again, he can just say "Department".  He expects that this letter will show up in court one day.  The department was asked a legal question by a company that wants to sell goods here and had an actual attorney respond to the company with an advisory opinion that actually made sense.

Yes.  To avoid confusion.  The department lawyer is doing his job, trying to make life easier for his client.

The degree to which they enforce the barbless rule varies by region too. They tend to be stricter during steelhead season up north...compared to the central coast. Especially when you're truly targeting striped bass and the chances of encountering a steelhead/salmon are very low.

They sell these all over the country and they are considered barbless in a handful of states. Because one of those states is CA, they should market them as barbless? Seems like rather dubious advice.
