I was wondering where or who makes custom made hooks, I'm sure you would have to order a ton of them before any one would do it but I guess it would be worth it. Is there any mom and Plaster of Paris hook makers out there? Thanks for the help. These hooks are a dream of mine, I just need direction.

predator bass baits make custom made treble hooks with feathers and stuff on them. Just visit predatorbassbaits.com and click on custom treble hooks at top of page he makes like 20 different kinds. I have tried to tie some before but mine don't look half as good as his.

What kind of hooks are you looking for? Treble, trailer, jig, etc.
What material are you looking for? Stainless, Carbon Steel, Nickel plated, Tin Plated, etc?
What type of bend are you looking for? Sproat, Perfect, Circle, O'Shaunessy, etc?
What type of shank are you looking for? Forged, Round, Long, Short, etc.
If you want somebody to make your "dream" hooks,
A. Do you have a patent (in hand or in-process) on your "Dream" hooks, or
B. Is your "Dream" hook a knock-off or "same as XYZ, except for_____" or
C. Some other situation like previous patent or ownership expired, hook in public domain, etc.
Depending on the answers to above, will affect the possible number of mom and Plaster of Paris and other hook makers.

Mo Quack, hook making is an industrial process that requires lots of tooling and lots of precision, so label me "doubtful" that you'd find a manufacturer that builds them to a small user's custom specs.

well I did some "outside the box" thinking and might of found a company that might do it. It more of a bait keeper idea than a hook idea but I figured hook knowledge would work for this idea, I'm going to make a sample and send them, I hope they can help

The thought I have is to approach a already a manufacture to sell them your idea and maybe they would pick it up if they see your idea is going to be a hit..
Let them do the work for your idea..
