Understanding Hooks - Standard Hook Parts / Sections

Hooks are typically made out of metal but could be made with other materials. Here are the main parts of a standard hook; Eye, Shank, Bend, Barb, Point and Bait Barbed Shank.

 

Parts of a Fishing Hook

 

  • Eye – is where the Line is tided.
  • Shank – is the main part of the hook where the bait is fastened.
  • Shank with a barb – is the main part of the hook where the bait is fastened and the barbs which face upwards to holds it in position longer.
  • Bend – the hooking / holding element of the hook.
  • Twist in Bend – some hooks have a slight twist in the bend of the hook to hook the fish better.
  • Barb – is where the fish hooked so it’s harder to get off the hook (Demonstrated with a piece of cardboard in a video)
  • Barbless – is where there is no barb which is safer for the fish in a catch & release situation BUT it’s more difficult to keep a fish on the line while in the fight to reel it in.
  • Point – Is the tip of the hook that breaches the skin in the fish’s mouth to hook it.
  • Gap – The distances between the point and the shank
  • Hook Length – The distance between the tip of the eye and the farthest spacing from the bend.
