Gamakatsu Big River Bait Hooks

Gamakatsu

 

Gamakatsu Big River Bait hooks may not be a common hook in fly shops but they are a useful hook as a trailing hook on steelhead and salmon flies tied on shanks.  The sickle-style bend on these hooks are believed by many anglers to hook and hold fish better.

The Gamakatsu Big River Bait hooks are also a good hook for the "English Style Bait Hooks" often used in fly tying for patterns like San Juan Worms or worm patterns with a body wrapped with wire or V-Rib.
