About UK Hooks
UK Hooks is a small one-man business (not forgetting her indoors) and I try to look after my customers who appreciate speed, good value and the personal touch. I am slowly developing this website to feature all of the stock that I sell and expect that this should be completed sometime in the future! I started with a stock of 30,000 hooks in 10 patterns and this has grown to 42 patterns and over 100 other sea angling items in my current catalogue. I keep a float of at least 550,000 hooks in stock now but still run out of some of the sizes.
I have recently started selling a selection of Zziplex rods and make up my own brand of boat fishing rods, based on German Sportex blanks. These are a limited edition and are built to order only so if you are looking for something a bit special, give me a ring: Boat rods in 12lb, 20lb, 30lb & 50lb on a fast taper carbon fibre blank. Finished rods are 7foot 6 inches, all fitted with Fuji SIC or black braid rollers. They will be made as a one or two piece rod.
I have always been easily seduced by a good hook. Eagle Claw, Mustad, VMC and Rozetti are making hooks that fit my idea of the perfect hook for fishing in the UK.
My own interests are in beach & boat fishing from my own boat. I have always loved the sea and have worked on Cornish Trawlers, Crabbers and Long-liners and run a couple of Pleasure boats in the past.
