“The Preston range of hooks for hairrigging has never let me down”

  Tommy Pickering

Why is the PR36 so good? The out-turned eye of the PR36 has been developed to improve hooking performance when using hair-rigs, the knotless knot and small hooks (size 10 and smaller). The knotless knot is the easiest way to make a hair-rig and it produces an angle at the eye of the hook that can improve hooking performance, especially on larger hooks. But when the knot is used on smaller hooks with a straight eye, the angle is too great and this can actually impair hooking efficiency.

The point of the straight-eyed carp hook is almost at 90° to the angle of pull whereas the point of the PR36 is more in-line with the angle of pull. This is because the PR36 has a slightly out-turned eye. In fishing situations this means that when a fish picks up the bait and moves off the point is more exposed and more likely to prick the fish. Once this happens the fish bolts, or you strike, and the hook penetrates immediately.
