Gamakatsu – 58414 Worm Hook, Offset Shank, Extra Wide Gap 4 – 0 5 Pack - Review
Sport fishing began 20,000 years ago with the invention of the fish hook. Initially, hooks were made from wood or bones. However, with advancements in technology, the quality of hooks improved. Copper hooks were created in Banchen around 7,000 years ago, and artificial flies were used in Egypt 4,000 years ago. Fishing was a popular recreational activity in ancient China as well.
Today, thanks to modern materials and manufacturing techniques, there are numerous high-quality hooks available for different types of fish and fishing methods. Gamakatsu hooks stand out from other brands due to their exceptional manufacturing process.
Firstly, Gamakatsu only uses premium-grade high carbon steel. This ensures that the hooks are free from any imperfections that could weaken them.
Secondly, Gamakatsu employs an advanced tempering system. Each hook is heated to the precise temperature suitable for its particular style and size, and then it is cooled in oil. This process produces hooks that are both strong and flexible, striking a delicate balance. It took Gamakatsu many years to perfect this process.
Lastly, Gamakatsu has a state-of-the-art sharpening process. The result is a perfectly conical point that is exceptionally sharp, unmatched by any other brand.
One of Gamakatsu's offerings is the Oversize G-Mag Worm Hook. It is specifically designed to rig magnum-sized tubes, worms, and swim baits. This hook is a standard component of all Mission Fish swim baits.
