Made in Japan, Gamakatsu hooks are crafted from a premium grade of high carbon steel. This ensures durability, resisting blemishes in the metal that can weaken the hook. The hooks are also put through a sharpening process which results in a superior, conical point, which sharpness is unrivalled. The Long Shank hooks by Gamakatsu are a reliable hook, with extra-long shank for baiting up worms, prawns and long cut baits. The extra-long shank also provides easy de-hooking of your catch. The Long Shank hooks are available in many different sizes and pack quantities to suit any fishing adventure!
