point that has such an aggressive hold.
The search then continued to The
‘Ability Curve’ hooks and with a slight
adjustment again the pattern was
complete. Next on the list is the ‘Ability
Classic’ hook, which is a straight
forward small shank hook, incorporating
our own personal little tweak of
perfection, a small in turn to the point of
the hook giving it the slight beak that we
feel gives a superior hook hold. The
complete range of hooks are super
sharp, straight from the packet and all
hand packaged, coming with a very
competitive RRP of £3.49 for ten. They
are available in both Barbed and
Barbless ranging in size from 4, 6 & 8’s.
There will also be four more

due out very soon; Twister, Curve

Still from here on and even after they had
finalised what products they were going to
offer and were totally happy
with everything that was on

had to move onto the hard
part of putting the company
together! What made it
tough was Lewis being a
full time house husband
and Nick a fulltime finance
officer, so dedicating time
was always going to be
hard, but with anything that is going to
be great, sacrifices had to be made.
