Gamakatsu has raised the bar of fly-hook technology with its new SC15-2H Saltwater Wide Gap, a hook perfect for virtually any big-game application. Using its standard SC15 for a model, Gamakatsu made modifications that resulted in what the company's technicians feel to be the perfect balance between strength, weight and diameter.
"We wanted a hook with a diameter thin enough to penetrate the toughest jaws with ease, yet the strength to hold on to an angry 200-pound tarpon," says a company spokesman. "This hook accomplishes that."
Gamakatsu uses high-quality steel and a state-of-the-art tempering process to make its hooks super strong while light in weight.
The SC15-2H comes in sizes 3/0, 4/0 and 5/0 and is finished in tin for corrosion resistance. Like all Gamakatsu hooks, it comes out of the box sticky sharp.
