The Wide Gape hook has become a true design classic, and has accounted for more big carp than any other pattern. It was based on the cult Maruta Kinryu pattern that found favour with the likes of Terry Hearn in the 1990s. The five-degree in-turned eye, short shank, heavily forged bend and beaked point combine to give anglers a hooked-to-landed ratio far in excess of anything else that’s achievable. It can be used for pop-up and bottom-bait presentations and is the hook to opt for when fishing for the very biggest and trickiest carp around. The Wide Gape X is a beefed-up version of the Wide Gape, designed for use in the most extreme fishing situations on the Planet. It’s been road-tested on infamously snaggy waters, like Rainbow Lake, and has even been used to land monster species like Arapaima and Mekong Catfish. Just like it’s little brother, the Wide Gape X is suited to both pop-up and bottom-bait presentations. The heavily forged, square bend, beaked point and in-turned eye combine to make sure that you land that elusive monster, whether you’re fishing a hard syndicate in the UK, or dodging tree stumps on some Continental super-water. The Wide Gape XX is two wire gauges higher than the standard Wide Gape and has been designed, developed and tested for use in the most demanding of fishing situations in the world! All of the dimensions that have made the Wide Gape a classic pattern are mirrored exactly in the XX version, so you know that these hooks are proven, as well as super-strong.
