Long, curved shank hooks are tailor made for incorporating into rigs that give a high level of anti-ejection and ultimately create strong hook holds.
With their extended curved shank these hooks mechanically twist and turn extremely aggressively when inhaled or mouthed by a feeding carp. This aggressive action forces the hook point to take hold in the bottom lip where it inevitably takes the strongest possible hook hold.
Hookbaits can be mounted in a variety of ways with these hooks, either on a conventional hair trapped in position with a small section of 0.5mm silicone tubing (set opposite the hook point or barb is best), or mounted onto a sliding rig ring or small rig swivel that can be held in place with a Covert Hook Stop to enhance the rigs anti-eject properties (highly recommended for use with pop ups).
These Longshank Mugga hooks are ideal for use on 360 rigs.
- Available in Sizes 4, 6, 8 and 10 in Barbed or Barbless.
- 10 hooks per pack.
“I recently moved over to the Longshank Mugga Hooks for pop-up rigs and they have definitely converted more pick-ups to fish on the bank – more even than extending hook shanks with shrink tube or similar long shank hooks available on the market.” Tim Childs
