Premium hooks by by Maruto Dohitomi & Co., LTD. of Japan have been made for over 120 years. 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 and red.
Maruto barbed hooks also come in both sickle-style and round bend trebles, Grabber Hook barbless as well as barbed versions. These hooks are of the exceptional quality that has become a standard in Maruto hooks. Extremely sharp and strong, in black nickel finish and red, these treble hooks penetrate quickly and hold well.
Special order hooks as well are available which in include jig hooks #5350 and 5331, heavy wire short shank hooks #8500, as well as fly hooks and offshore styles.
