Hays Hook Custom Stainless Steel Hooks were developed for both strength and hookup ratios. A slight re-curve give the hook incredible hooking and holding power. The shape of the hook retains the advantages of an open gape for "grasp" and an inward "tuna" shape with conical point allowing quicker and deeper penetration. The shank to point ratio is ideal for trolling. Hays Hooks are hand forged, stainless steel.
