Forcing a hook to act ‘aggressively’ will go a long way to improving the overall efficiency of your rig and converting more bites to fish on the bank. This sounds odd, but the more aggressively the hook acts, the faster it reacts in that minuscule moment when the fish
makes a mistake.
This simply means elongating the shank of the hook and adding a ‘kicker’ such a Covert Hook Aligner, so that the hook reacts faster. The result is that the hook is more likely to stay in the correct orientation within the fish’s mouth that bit longer.
