The Classic Mustad Steelhead Beak hook features a reversed hook point for increased hook hold. It permits the point to come in contact with the mouth of the fish, without turning. The long beaked point provides better penetration and hold. The 1X short shank makes it perfect for presenting roe in egg sacs for river Steelhead and Salmon. The 1X strong wire is strong enough to battle even big fish. Features an up-turned eye, which works particularly well in combination with the Snell knot for optimal presentation of the bait.
