Rotating hooks


 Share

Recommended Posts

 

Hmmm, Eagle Claw sent me a load of these to try, I will give them a go on the skerries and see if they outperform the Sakuma Atlantics that we normally use.

Normally if I want a hook to rotate then I rig it Carp style, but I'll tie on one of these and see what happens. I normally throw away bent hooks 🤣🤣🤣

Yes, if you rig with a knotless knot on an out turned eye, and use a very soft hook length, then the hook will turn as the fish spits the bait.

Knotless knot? Do you mean snelling a hook?

A snell knot is a whipping knot, slightly different to the knotless knot. It is mainly the shrink tube that causes the hook to 'turn'. It is important to put the line the correct direction through the eye.

I take this into boat fishing using pennel hooks (Sakuma 543) and cut the hair off near the bottom if the knot, or use a long hair and thread it through the bait.

 

This geezer is a bit of a clown but it shows the idea
