"Best saltwater hooks i've ever had. Very strong and sharp. Ive tied with many different brands of hooks trying to find the best one, and this has won by far."

"I have used several brands and these are my favorite. So sharp, that I have to be careful to avoid the hook point when tying."

"Whether you tying tarpon patterns such as toads, destroyers, merkins, or EP patterns such as the Peanut Bunker/Streamers, this hook is the single best choice. With a gap bend much more open you will reduce the amount of short strikes and missed fish. Plus a complement to hookups, is how light in weight these hooks really are. Casting into a head-on wind situation is lesser the battle now. I really enjoy tying my flies using this style of hook and I hope you will too!
Tight Lines!!"

Gamakatsu wonder!,
11 December 2007
By: Garioch
from Aberdeenshire, Scotland
"I love this hook! For its size it is exceptionally light, and very very strong. I fly fish for Pike and have found these hooks ideal for dressing EP style flies. I tend to use the 4/0 size and its shape is ideal for this range of flies.
Being tin plated they do not rust when put away wet, a bonus for me, and they are extremely sharp. The only thing I have to to is pinch the barb down.
Great hook for Pike flies.
