Korda Longshank Beaked Hooks

Longshank Beaked Hooks are based on the original Korda Longshank X, which in turn, was based on the popular, original fly hook patterns that found favour with carp anglers due to their shape and hooking ability. Korda made them much stronger and sharper.

Fast forward 20 years and Danny Fairbrass has been tweaking this ultimate carp catcher once again. Heavily influenced by his underwater filmimg experiences, Dan decided to make two major changes to one of his favourite patterns, making it an even deadlier option within his armoury.

The first change was to create the hook with a beaked point. During testing, the beaked point provided more secure hook holds, increasing the hooked fish to landed ratio significantly.

The other change was to in-turn the eye even further. The original pattern has a 20 degree in-turned eye, the new beaked version increases this to 40 degrees. This helps the hook flip and turn extremely quickly in the carp’s mouth, ensuring consistently good hook holds.

In keeping with the original pattern, the Longshank Beaked is forged, with a stepped-up wire gauge for extra strength, whilst maintaining its durability with a PTFE coating.

Available in micro-barbed or barbless sizes 2, 4, 6 and 8. 10 per packet.
