The Story

Gamakatsu SC17 Tarpon Hook. Best saltwater hooks made. Rounded point for quick set. Stout shank. Slightly upturned eye.

Size: 1/0 (12 pcs), 2/0 (10 pcs), 3/0 (10 pcs).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great hooks for striper flies I use these hooks for striper flies. heavy duty and the the extra weight acts as a keel to help bulky flies swim true. very sharp right out of the pack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still #1 tarpon/big game hook Use this both in tarpon flies and big game—yellowfin tuna and other blue water gamefish. Nothing is tougher than tuna and these hooks hold and hold up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Guide....."For tarpon, use only Gamakatsu." I am a novice when it comes to fly fishing for tarpon. Having lost a large tarpon to hook failure (it bent), my guide said to use Gamakatsu ........period! Point taken, so my new flies will be tied on Gamakatsu hooks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Previously purchased these hooks and thought they looked and felt great. After tying some flies with them and fishing with them it fully made my mind up. One of the strongest tarpon hooks available and very sharp for a good hook up. I also liked that they were a heavy hook thsn normal. So soon as I got back purchased some more in different sizes.
