Covert Mugga Hooks - Gardner Tackle
The Mugga hook pattern is widely recognised as being one of the most awesomely effective hooks available to carp and specimen anglers!
Covert Stealth Hook Technology
In developing a technically advanced, anti-glare plating system, we have taken camouflage to a completely new level.
The irridescent colouring is adaptive to ambient light, so by mimicking the surrounding light conditions Covert Hooks blend in seamlessly with the enviroment.
The problems associated with pale Teflon coatings - the tendency to rust around the eye, prominence on dark lake beds and added bulk to the hook dimensions - are now eradicated once and for all.
If you look at the design of the Mugga Hooks it’s not hard to see why it offers unrivalled hooking potential when used with a variety of hooklink materials. The aggressive hooking action and strong hook holds that the pattern gives are due to a combination of key features working perfectly together.
Firstly, the combination of a sweeping, slightly curve shank and a 25o in-turned eye cause the hook to flip as soon as the hooklink tightens or the hook eye reaches the edge of fish’s lip. This unique action means that the hook will take hold firmly in the corner of the mouth or in the bottom lip without having to add shrink tube to improve a less effective ‘similar’ pattern...
After this the specific orientation between the hook eye and the super sharp straight point creates the best possible angle to aid the hook penetrating quickly and securely. Simply, this means you will land more fish.
The original Mugga Hook is constructed with a high carbon wire that ensures the hook isn’t heavy or bulky, but thanks to the way the hook goes in and stays in, is still extremely strong and devastatingly reliable hook
The larger hooks in the range have proven particularly effective and popular with anglers that want to create 360o rigs in circumstances where long-shank curved hooks may not be allowed.
The size 11 and 12 hooks have now become firm favourites for use in Zig Rig fishing. They really do reduce the number of hook pulls anglers experience zigging – a problem commonly associated with this method.
