Fishing hooks come in a wide variety of sizes and shapes. Only those who choose the right hook will pull the big catch out of the water. The fishhook fulfills two essential tasks in fishing. On the one hand, it serves to secure the fishing lure, on the other hand, it is the bite point for the fish.
A classic hook consists of several parts - the head, the shank, the bottom, the point and, depending on the model, the barb. The exact construction (single hook, double hook, treble hook) depends largely on the target fish. There are also some important points to consider when choosing the right size. If you choose a hook that is too big, there is a risk that the fish will just grab the bait. If it is too small, there is also a high probability that it will slip away from you. When buying in this regard, you need to pay attention to the somewhat special hook size system. The larger the number, the smaller the hook.
In general, it is advisable to take several different fishing hooks with you on every fishing trip. This makes it easier to adapt to local conditions and increases the chance of a catch.
