1. Gamakatsu fly hooks - can't remember the model, purple colour packaging

2. Decoy plugging singles

3. Decoy jigging singles with inline eye - opened up my decoy couple weeks ago when i put it at the tail point of the jig and caught a baby amberjack......there goes my confidence on these hooks.

4. Owner Jigging singles. More like a J - hook with in-line hook eye.

Gamakatsu single lure hooks. Campbells should have them.

But the eye should lie parallel with the shaft. I hope you get what I mean. Not the standard hook eye in other words. The lure swims better that way.

Some techno fishing nut on here will tell us the right terminology for that hook, but I think Uluabuster has it right as the fly hook.

If I spent half as long fishing , as I do reading this bloody forum , I'd be twice the fisherman I am.
