The pattern shown below is not a circle hook. These hooks are designed for fish that take a bait (live or dead) fully intending to eat it, not eject it. The point is designed to gradually pull in to the scissors as the fish moves off. They are intended to reduce possible harm to released game and salt water fish.

I have messed about with small Mustad circle hooks with inconclusive results. That said, I feel certain that one day somebody is going to come up with a set up that allows this pattern of hook to be used to its intended effect in general coarse/carp/pike fishing.

Catch and Release - Circle hooks.

They seem strong enough to me - I've had carp to 29 on them in a fairly snaggy corner.

I bought some of these a while back but didn't think they looked very strong, how have you found them?

Nash Gapers are similar, discontinued when they went over to pinpoint but you can still pick them up.

circle hooks which are designed to do that

Circle hooks are designed to go in to the scissors of the mouth and stay in but give easy removal. That is what circle hooks are designed to do. Kranks & QM1's do not do that in the majority as the rigs used are totally different to those that are effective with circle patterns.

Similar to a korda krank by the look of it. I tried the chod version on a barbless only water, found them to have great hook holds, but had a couple where they were in almost to the eye and got put off a bit

I think the kranks and the guru qm1 hooks were based on circle hooks which are designed to do that

I have been doing quite well with some bankbug Demon hooks (KD rig, with a wafter).



Are there any other similar patterns around to try? They are a bit different to the standard kurve and wide gapes...
