20,000 years ago, the invention of the fish hook marked the beginning of sport fishing. The first hooks were made of wood or bones. As technology improved, so did the hooks. Records show that copper hooks were made in Banchen 7,000 years ago and artificial flies were used in Egypt 4,000 years ago. Fishing was also a popular form of entertainment in ancient China. Today, modern materials and manufacturing techniques have resulted in hundreds of styles of extremely high quality hooks, designed for specific types of fish and fishing methods.

The methods used in creating Gamakatsu hooks is what makes it so superior to all other brands. First, only the most premium grade of high carbon steel is used. This insures against any blemishes in the metal which can weaken the hook.

Secondly, Gamakatsu has the most advanced tempering system in the world. Every hook is heated to the exact temperature that is perfect for that particular style and size then cooled in oil. This process produces hooks which are super strong, but not brittle. It is extremely difficult to achieve a balance between strength and flexibility, and it took many years for Gamakatsu to perfect this process.

Finally, and perhaps most importantly, our sharpening process is the most modern in the world, and results in a perfectly conical point that is unequaled in sharpness. Gamakatsu's most versatile hook, the Gamakatsu Octopus Hook has long been known for its durability and strength. The Octopus hook comes in a wide variety of sizes, colors and finishes, including fluorescent finishes.

Great for Bait!
I use these hooks exclusively when chunking bait. They are very strong and dependable and I have never had one bend out on me. They are very sharp and tend to stay that way.

Excellent Bait Hooks
I use these with a snell for bait rigs targeting panfish. The upturned eye puts the hook point right in the line of pull with maximum exposure. The wire is light but plenty strong for how I use them.
Pros- Sticky sharp - High percentage of hookups

I want to use these hooks to Texas rig. Will they be good for this? I purchased them on a whim because I can tell they are very well made and thought out. Just wanted to know what some of the designers intended applications for this hook are.

This hook would be perfect for Texas rigging.

Do you sell the Gamakatsu Octopus hooks in boxes of 100? I usually buy them this way as a custom fly tier and would prefer to purchase them in lots of 100. I also have a fly tying and guiding business and would like to inquire about dealer/guide pricing. Do you allow for this or have this as an option?

25 packs are the largest we sell the Octopus in Bulk. They are shown on this page:
