If you are a serious fisherman, there’s only one choice and Gamakatsu is it. They are the benchmark in high quality, chemically sharpened Japanese steel fishing hooks and they’ve added a black colour to the existing long shank red.
Long shank hooks are versatile and perfect for worms, pipis, prawns and cut flesh baits either fished from a boat or land as well as mud eye in the fresh.
They are perfect for kids starting out as they are available in a wide variety of fish catching sizes and they are also easy for anyone to get fish off quickly, often without touching the fish at all. In addition the long shank offers protection from toothy species such as leatherjackets, a wharf staple for young anglers.
Beach anglers are also extensive users of this hook style for whiting and bream, while boat anglers will find them effective at catching yellowtail and slimy mackerel allowing a quick turnover from de-hooking a fish to getting another bait in the water.
This new colour is available in sizes 12 up to 2 and in pre-packs and 25 packs.
