Inexpensive saltwater hooks

Recommended Posts

Am looking to purchase a JYS-4-A banana jig mold that takes Eagle Claw 635 hooks. Are there any other inexpensive salt water hooks out there. I find most people lose them before any rusting takes place.

The EC 635 is a heavy wire tin plated hook , so it is no going to rust because it was plated for salt water. I sell a lot of these and never had any complaints. The comparable hook although a little costlier is a Mustad 91715.

On another note, many guys I have dealt with are switching over to black nickle hooks. I have been told by several of my customers, that they work just as good as the tinned hooks, and naturally a wider variety of hooks in the black nickle series that fit a wide variety of jigs.

Cadman, I have been using the EC 635 and some black nickle and they are both acceptable for my use. Just keeping my options open when I get back to Illinois where I pour. The black nickle just looks sharper,stronger.
