Gamakatsu is the leading fishing hook manufacturer in Japan and are constantly testing new materials, trying to improve our product that already sets the standard for the rest of the industry.
The methods used to create Gamakatsu hooks are what make them superior to other brands.
First, only the most premium grade of high carbon steel is used as to ensure protection against any blemishes in the metal that can weaken the hook.
Secondly, Gamakatsu has the most advanced tempering system in the world. Every hook is heated to the exact temperature that is perfect for that particular style and size then cooled in oil. This process produces hooks which are super strong, but not brittle.
The team at Get Fishing almost exclusively use Gamakatsu hooks for a host reasons such as their strength, ability to stay sharp, rust resistance and value for money. It’s for these reasons that we’re proud to have Gamakatsu as a sponsor and encourage any of our members who are using inferior hooks to grab a few packs of Gammys next time you’re in the tackle store.
