As part of the introduction of the new Target Specimen range, we have also added a great all round hook pattern, The Target Specimen Hook.
It’s perfect for use with an extremely wide variety baits and rigs for a range of species; from hard fighting river species like big chub and barbel, to still water fish like tench and bream – right through to carp.
Target Specimen hooks benefit from the application of the unique Covert finish reduces glare and mimics predominant colours in the environment, offering ultimate camouflage.
They have been manufactured with an extremely strong forged high carbon wire too offer the power too subdue large fish with relatively small sized hooks.
The combination of a beaked point and 5o in turned eye ensure excellent penetration and strong hook holds. Another big advantage of the beaked point is its resistance to becoming dulled or turned over whilst you’re fishing on gravel.
The hook features a non reversed bend. This means that the hook point and the hook shank line up with one another, and it is this relationship, along with the penetrative angle created by eye and beaked point genuinely aids positive penetration.
This is a hook pattern that has proven itself able to land big fish in the most testing circumstances.
During extensive testing the size 12’s have been used extensively by members of the Gardner Tackle carp team for zigging and the feedback has been these hooks perform superbly.
We believe the Target Specimen hook to be the ultimate specimen hook pattern.
