Spotted Fin has hit the market with a huge range of bait products and fishing tackle in recent months. We received a whole bundle of its new gear in the office and were keen to see what was on offer for us carp anglers. We particularly like the range of carp hooks.

With barbed and barbless patterns available with drab finishes on all the hooks they are sharp out of the packet, with generous wire gauges on each pattern to ensure that they are as strong as they can be for their size. Particular favourites are the Wide Gape pattern with a straight eye and beaked point; a winner if you want to ensure great hook-holds. Each pack contains 10 hooks with sizes ranging from 4 to 10 dependent on pattern.
