Maruto 8346BL Hooks
Best selling high quality Japanese Hooks
Like the 8500 but barbless and about an eye length shorter the Maruto 8346BL hook was originally designed to fish for Japanese Black Bream which have a hard, boney mouth. These keep the same wide gap as the 8500 but have a straight eye. When coho have been staging off the river mouths waiting for high water, they can become fussy. We found that going down in the size of the Neils or other krill patterns is the key to coaxing them to grab. Because the hooks have a shorter shank, you can use them for the tiniest krill patterns while knowing that the wider gap will help hold you tight to the fish.
