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 O'Shaughnessy hooks by Gamakatsu are a heavy duty hook, with long straight shank and point. They are popular for surf fishing and are ideal to use with strip baits! The O'Shaughnessy hooks are available in many different sizes and pack quantities to suit any fishing adventure!
