Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS -

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.
