Gardner’s hooks already have a copper-bottomed reputation, and now they have a new coating and a variety of tweaks.
Classic designs like the Mugga and Incizor have had their points made longer, slimmer and even sharper, while the new matt plating reduces glare and improves concealment.
The Covert Dark finish is a single electroplated layer which means there’s a reduction in handling during the finishing process to ensure pin-sharp points.
Improvements have also been made to the barbs on these hooks. The micro barb has been reduced in size to comply with many fishery rules and, says Gardner, micro-barbed hooks are stronger as less wire is cut out to form the barb.
Available in a range of sizes in packets of 10 and in barbed and barbless options.
