    Posted: 17 Sep 2015 at 6:53am

I have made some experiment regarding to hook the Trouts in the local Stream. first in the season I lost a lot off Fish with some really large ones amongst. Have always fished my 60mm. MN-1 with two Trebles on. Tried to put a bigger rear treble on, but that did not work as I wonted. Tried some other solutions, but it was first when I put a 1/0 single Hook in the front it worked. Have caught about 43 Trouts after and only lost a couple. One thing not so good was it offend hooked it self casting. This I have now solved by making this little wire to hold the hook. When the Fish strikes it is released. Have tried it a couple off times and it works very well. Maybe some other can use this Smile

Thanks Shane. One good thing about this : You can easily convert old Lure this way Smile I offend use a net landing the Fish. With the double trebles there is a big risk to set a hook in it. This is now gone, and it is also way more easy to release Fish Big smile

Good thinking PJ.

You could avoid using the second split ring by using a hook with an "in line" eye. I'd recommend the Gamakatsu "Single Lure Hook" (size number one or two on a 60mm lure), and I believe it would be a better match than what you've got in the picture.

Gamakatsu produced the Single Lure Hook for exactly this reason, because in NZ they have to swap out the trebles for singles.

p.j you probably get an additional benefit as well  when casting into or side on to the wind. More casting distance.

That idea might work well for me up here.

Thanks for the posting.

Great idea, PJ. Does the clip, with the hook in it, tighten the action of the lure?

Cheers, Tony.

Nice idea pj....i use a lot of single lure hooks, i believe the hook up rate is as good or better at times......like JKR mentioned the gamakatsu single lure hooks are very good.
your wire clip idea is great.

Thanks all Big smile I have considered the in line single hook, and asked my local "dealer" to take some home. Can tell it don't affect the action on this Minnow model off mine. Have to try on other models to tell here. One thing that really toke me by surprise was : The Minnows I have upgraded went higher in the Water, with the hook attach. The one on the Pict. is a high model, built to go about 3-5cm. under the surface. Pulled the Hook out and it went back to normal depth. I actually had to bend the bib a bit fore ward to avoid it to be a "surface Lure" Confused

John you were asking fore Pict. off Trouts caught with this sinkel Hook system. Had a quick session tonight. Caught a couple off good "dinner" Fish. As you can see on both Fish, the Hook really sits very well. Had one more i relleased and some bumps.

Nice design PJ !

I've done something similar, using screw eyes. Seems to work quite well.

Beautiful trout, BTW !

Received a special lure from Per to try down my way and also several friends.

Needed some sunshine to show off his paint work have size 8 owner trebles to put on the rear.

At this stage intend using lures to cast towards shore when I put the boat in.
