The best for Stiffs and Chods; Gamakatsu Wide Gape Super


The best for Stiffs and Chods; Gamakatsu Wide Gape Super                     

By Saron Debets

The Gamakatsu Wide Gape Super is a model I frequently use in my fishing. It is specially designed for chod and stiff rigs.

The Wide Gape Super is perfect in combination with stiff hook link

These rigs are made with stiff hook link material such as fluorocarbon. With a ‘regular’ hook, the line will leave the eye of the hook in a narrower angle resulting in a smaller opening and negatively affecting the hooking capacity.

Because the Wide Gape’s eye slightly points backwards, the stiff link material will leave in a wider angle resulting in a larger opening between hook eye and hook point. This way the hook remains its effectiveness and therefor is my first choice when it comes to stiffs and chods.

The chod has been extremely effective for me
