A thin wired, short shank, beaked hook that is a firm favourite of the species hunter and match angler. The short shank is ideal for presenting smaller baits well, the wide gape allows for the presentation of a wide variety of baits from small, neat crab baits to slivers of fish. Although this hook is made from fine wire, it is also incredibly strong. The slightly bent eye positions the hook well for hooking fish and is ideal for both standard knotting and when using the knotless knot. When there is an element of doubt about the size and type of species you might encounter, but you need to cover all bases, these are the hooks to go for.
