Zone­loc Hooks

Sport Fishing Gear Guide - - Tackle & Accessories -

The shape of the fish­ing hook has been vir­tu­ally un­changed since man first looked into the wa­ter with a grumbly tummy. We went from bone to steel, then laser- and chem­i­cally sharp­ened, and then … noth­ing. Zone­loc, and a num­ber of pros, say the new shape is a rev­o­lu­tion­ary change that in­creases an an­gler’s hook-up ra­tio and im­proves fish re­ten­tion. The ini­tial sec­tion be­low the barb gets the fish to the main bend more quickly, while pro­tect­ing the fish from the barb, then the off­set main bend keeps the fish there. MSRP: $2-$7 USD Zone­
