New for catfish – Rippin Lips Tournament Grade Circle Hook

Article Media Click images to enlarge +

The new Circle Hook has been designed in conjunction with catfish legend John Jamison.

US catfishing legend John Jamison has teamed up with South-Central Pennsylvania manufacturer Rippin Lips to design and forge what he believes to be the ultimate hook for big cats.

Regular tournament winner Jamison has tried and tested nearly every circle hook in the catalogue, but his collaboration with the hardcore catfish tackle company has, he says, produced the best of all – the Tournament Grade Circle Hook.

“Once you tag a big cat with one of these sticky circles you can count on them staying hooked,” says Jamison, who has recorded a 94% hook-up rate fishing rivers and reservoirs.

“We constructed the hook with an optimised offset that starts the hook moving faster in a catfish’s jaw. This leads to quicker, more forceful penetration and a higher hook-up percentage.”

The Tournament Grade Circle Hook is engineered with a surgically precise hook gap, needle sharp point and the best point position to maximise penetration for all types of bites, reports Rippin Lips. The hooks are finished in blood-red and forged in five sizes: 1/0, 3/0, 5/0, 7/0 and 8/0.
