    Default QM1 hooks

    I posted about my method hooks opening up under pressure from playing a fish. Guru QM 1 hooks were recommended to me and I have found them to be excellent and have undoubtedly lost me fewer fish!

    I pay far too much attention to rods, reels and line and not enough to the to the smallest and seemingly least significant item! Not any more !

    Good hooks but when are Guru going to work out a packet of 10 hooks should contain 10, not 8.

    I have just checked an unopened pack and there were 10 hooks in it!! The hooks to nylon packs contain just 8 rigs!

    Those hooks are very sharp, unlike the people that pack them.

    The hook Mike is the most important element in our rigs, something we all tend to overlook on occasion I’m sure.

    Not for lack of trying but I haven't found any hooks to better drennan and kamasan hooks.

    I too use and like both of those brands, especially in the smaller sizes. But in size 10 and above, I now have great faith in these ones from Bank Tackle: Wide Gape Hooks. Carp Fishing Tackle.

    I am restricted to size 12 on all of one of my clubs waters and am happy with sizes 12 and 14 in the QM1 range of hair rigs to nylon! I do like Kamasan animal hooks to nylon which are not hair rigs and the Drennan red maggot hooks in 18 and 20 for roach!

    Drennan hooks for me.

    Lots of new fads come and go but Drennan Super Specialists just plod along doing the business. ...Straight point, straight eye, sharp and strong. As long as they dont mess with the hook or triple the price I cant imagine I will change.

    Very personal things hooks. I too like a lot of Drennan hook patterns with the exception of Super Specialist. I couldn't tell you why other than I dont like the shape.

    Main thing is Skippy, they work very well, and are cheap in comparison to many others .
