NEXT GENERATION TACKLE
The beaked point concept has become very popular, since commercial fisheries generally insisted on the use of barbless hooks.
A slightly curved-in point helps to prevent soft baits from coming off on the cast, and also improves the hook-hold on fish when there’s no barb.
This style of hook can be found with round, crystal and wide gape shapes, covering just about all baits, wire strengths and target species.
The most popular beaked point hooks tend to be pellet or carp designs, but some of the finer wire models are very good for silver fish and lighter rigs. I even use them with feeder tackle, rarely bumping anything off when playing fish in.
Similar to wide gape designs, beaked hooks have better hooking power and wider gapes in smaller sizes, so they often allow you to drop down in size, to pull a lot more bites. is available from reputable tackle dealers.
