Premium Hooks by Maruto

Premium hooks by by Maruto Dohitomi & Co., LTD. of Japan have been made 1892. Many claim these to be the "sharpest hooks I've ever used," and in 2015 Maruto barbless hooks (Grabber Hooks) were ranked #1 by Salmon Steelhead Journal amoung their criteria were sharpness and penetration. For Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and California, Alaska, and Nevada barb-less fisheries we offer the  Grabber Hook, a semi-barb-less deep penetrating sickle style hook in black nickel and red. For many it has made all the difference in these barb-less fisheries by maximizing "hook-up/fish in the net" ratios along with quick easily releases. Grabber Hooks come in both sickle-style single as well as treble variations in black nickel, red, and pink UV. 

Maruto barbed hooks also come in the popular sickle-style and other designs in single and treble hooks.  Maruto hooks are of the exceptional quality whether in-shore, offshore, fly, or other specialty hooks.   

Special order hooks as well are available.
