Double hooks are widely used for fly tying, but are also an ideal choice for use on hard body & soft lure rigs, and as a stinger hook on fresh baits. Using double hooks unlocks the true potential of many lures as the front double hook looks like pectoral fins while the rear double hook looks like a tail fin. They are superb as a belly hook on crankbaits and other hard body lures because there is no superfluous third point to interfere with action or scuff the lure.
With double hooks there’s no split ring required. So, it’s super fast and easy to switch hooks, but it also means they’re lighter, which translates to more lure action. And with no split rings, double hooks also make for a quieter lure – great when fish are shy or you emplying stealth tactics.
