Angler Innovations

 

Our goal at Angler Innovations® is to provide anglers with the edge for the passionate and to a better shopping experience on this site.  If you prefer, phone orders can be taken at 503-341-0287.

Grabber Hooks update: shipments are starting to come in from the factory and 2/0 Red and Black Nickel Grabber Hooks are now available along with Red sickle hooks (barbed) in size 4.  More will arrive today and shipments will continue and expect a near full inventory in December. Assembling this N. American Maruto Hook business has been, and continues to be, a worthy challenge.  We love these hooks.  Thanks to all of our great customers and their patience.

Sure Spins: We continue to understand just how much salmon love to eat Sure Spins!  One of the guides that uses them exclusively says, "they're just crushing them."  

Formal acceptance has continued throughout the Northwest.  The States of California, Idaho, Oregon, Washington, Nevada, and Alaska have signed off on our Maruto Barb-less ("Semi-Barb-less") Grabber Hooks for use in their respective barb-less fisheries.  

New Products:  

We now offer a pre-rigged version of Dick's Sure Spin Herring Helmet.   Hand tied with premium monofilament leader material and Maruto barb-less (Grabber Hooks) and barbed--both in singles or in trebles.  The pre-r igs are ready to go.

Dick's Sure Spin® Herring Helmet , now available in 8 sizes and 6 colors, continues to put more fish in the net.   Beach and jetty   casters  are taking increased amounts of salmon by casting herring like spinners - even  down rigger trollers  can use plug cut herring with confidence because of increased bait durability!

Can you please email me a copy of rigging the longliner? I purchased one at the Puyallup sportsman show from you. I have lost the instructions and want to hook it up correctly but don’t know how?

Thank you,

I just added your semi barbless hooks into my line up purchased from all sports. But I wanted to share to my friends the single hooks but can’t find them here. I did share the treble hooks. I wanted to show them that they are compliable to ODFW barbless rules

For interested shoppers-this outfit is first class and treats customers like they are the most important thing going. Steve Lumsden is in charge of this company and I highly recommend you review their items. Myself and several friends have great success with the Dick’s Sure Spin Herring Helmets! Easy to use and spin perfectly and adjustable depending on your desired speed-slow, medium and fast. High recommend you try these. They are working great on the Umpqua, Coos and Rogue Rivers here in Oregon.
Great company Steve!!! Keep up the good work!! Rick Kearney

I have resisted using plug cut a lot of the times over the years because I didn’t like how often I had to re-bait. I recently used Dick’s Sure Spin Herring Helmets for the first time and I am a believer. i can’t belive how long a bait will last. I just pulled them up every 10-15 minutes for a check and occasional addition of scent I fished a couple mornings at the bar in Nehalem bay and we hooked seven Chinook with three rods. All seven fish were hooked on my rod with herring helmet. I even had one fish with slip the hook before we got it to the boat and pulled the hooks from the herring and slid it up the line. I re-adjusted my bobber stop, put the hooks back through the undamaged side of the bait and caught another fish within about 15 minutes. I will definitely continue to use them and will probably fish plug cut more often. I would recommend anyone who fishes plug cut to give these a try. I don’t believe you’ll be sorry.
