West coast anglers love salmon. Salmon love herring. Herring love to rip and tear apart when you rig them with traditional hooks. Hence, the reason we designed the new Octopus Straight Eye hook. The ultra-thin, yet ultra-strong wire slides through soft baits without damaging the tender tissue. The hook eye is narrower and smoother too, so it can slide through as well. The result is a herring with that perfect spin, followed by a chrome bright chinook or coho in the net shortly thereafter. Available in sizes 8 to 4/0 with an NS black finish.
