This pattern resembles the Sproat and the Limerick (Viking) except that its point is bent slightly outward.
It is usually made of heavy wire for extra strength and confidence.
The bronze coated hooks (E255) are preferred for biting fish as they are likely to rust out quicker.
The stainless Steel versions (E007) & (E8255) are preferred by commercial fishermen.
The Nickel, Seaguard and Perma steel versions are good for 100's of hours in saltwater.
