The Vanfook CK33-BL is black nickel coated, in-line, barbless, single hook, specifically designed for fishing for area / impoundment trout with finesse crankbaits.

Many catch and release luring ponds that stock trout, no longer permit the use of treble hooks. To keep within impoundment pond rules, only single hooks may be used and they must be de-barbed to minimise injury to the fish.

This makes the CK-33BL an ideal replacement hook for trout lures.

Each hook comes with a closed ringed eye that runs parallel to the plane of the hook, to ensure that the hook is aligned with the orientation of the lure, so as not to impede its action.

To minimise soft tissue damage with such species of fish, Vanfook have opted to use a thinner wire gauge made of high carbon steel, with the hook’s bend angulated, to ensure that hook strength in relation to application, is not compromised.

In addition, the hook point has been ground into a barbless needlepoint that to ensure best penetrating power with the least force needed, to minimise injury to the pond fish.

To minimise the chances of the lure being spat, Vanfook have angled the CK-33BL’s hook point slightly inwards to narrow the hook’s gap, making it a highly effective, fish-friendly hook for area trout.
