There is no doubt that lengthening the shank of a hook increases its hooking potential. We have applied this reasoning to the Mugga, incorporating an extra long curved shank, a non-reversed bend and manufactured from our super strong forged Carbon Steel. The point is fiendishly sharp and stays sharp longer than most other hooks. Perfect for use with some of the more advanced anti-ejection rigs being used, the hook is ideal for pop-ups in the largest size and for balanced bottom baits in the smaller sizes. A devastatingly effective hook however it is used. Available in Sizes 4, 6, 8 and 10 in Barbed or Barbless. 10 hooks per pack. inchI've always been a fan of the short shank Mugga and never thought I'd find a better hook but I'm ecstatic to find that the Long Shank Mugga has performed equally as well, if not better - fantastic hooks. inch Lewis Porter (Associate Editor, Crafty Carper) inchI recently moved over to the Long Shank Mugga Hooks for pop-up rigs and they have definitely converted more pick-ups to fish on the bank - more even than extending hook shanks with shrink tube or similar long shank hooks available on the market. inch Tim Childs * Covert Longshank Mugga Hooks are also available.
