Pallatrax Announce The New Gripz Curve Shank Hooks

Pallatrax’s unique Gripz design of hooks has been one of the most innovative product ranges to emerge onto the angling scene in recent years. Up until the launch of this hook design anglers have only had the choice between barbed and barbless, but that is no longer the case with the launch of Gripz - a genuine third hook design. The uptake by anglers seeking to find a hook design better than barbed and barbless has been phenomenal and the fact that Gripz has also won international recognition for their fish and fishery safety benefits only adds to the positive...

Fish and Fishery Safety – Our Fishing Responsibility

Without doubt, one of the worst things I have seen as an angler and fishery owner was a major fish kill we suffered at a fishery I once owned in Dorset. Though this happened nearly twenty years ago, it certainly had a profound effect on me and definitely shaped the way I look at fish and fishery safety. There are lots of elements for us to consider and appreciate here as Ambassadors to the environment in which we fish, but the first for me has to be biosecurity. There are many unknowns within fish diseases because there is little research,...

Pallatrax Gripz Treble Hooks

Pallatrax Announce The New Gripz Treble Hooks

Pallatrax is pleased to announce the expansion of our unique Gripz hook range with the addition of a Treble hook version. The innovative Gripz hook design is fast becoming a revolutionary product range and these Treble hooks give a superb option for the Predator angler, especially when fishing for species such as Pike, Perch and Zander. These quality Trebles are manufactured from the highest-grade Japanese wire, in Japan, and each ‘cutting point’ hook point benefits from our exclusive Gripz design. Gripz hooks have been developed with both fish and fishery safety in mind, as well as angler satisfaction, with an...

Watercraft – Underappreciated, But Oh So Important!

If you were to put me on the spot and ask “what is the most important aspect within angling to catch consistently” it would be, without doubt, skilled watercraft. In the modern era of angling trends I have to confess it is disappointing that this topic is all too briefly studied because without acknowledging the importance of watercraft, and taking the necessary action, you will always be on the back foot. Today we see so much emphasis put on the next wonder rig or bait whilst forgetting that the ‘Old Skool’ appreciation of our quarry’s location, and the reasonings...

Simon Pomeroy – My Obsession With Fishing

My angling journey has certainly been varied to date with my first memory of catching Sticklebacks on a tiny Scottish Burn, through to owning boats in this country and abroad, running fisheries, tackle shops and for the last 20 years designing and producing baits, terminal ranges and fish catching tactics. All in all, it has been an interesting angling 'career' which has certainly opened my eyes to The Good, The Bad and The Ugly - and though I'm now in my 50's I'd like to think there are still a few years left to build upon my experiences so...

catfish hooks

What Are The Best Catfish Hooks?

Any angler who fishes for Catfish will know you need a very strong and sharp hook to land such hard fighting and heavy fish and with Pallatrax’s unique Gripz Eagle Wave Catfish hooks you can be assured of this, and so much more. Our Gripz hooks are a third-generation hook design moving on from Barbed and Barbless and offering the angler a hook design like no other. Made from incredibly strong Japanese wire the hooks are manufactured using cutting point technology to produce a hook point which we believe to be the sharpest, straight from the packet, of anything currently available...

What Are The Best Fishing Hooks?

As anglers, we all know the importance of a high-quality hook and until now we have only had the choice of two designs, Barbed and Barbless – but that’s all changed! Pallatrax has developed a genuine third design with the Gripz hooks which cater for the majority of species and tactics. From Specimen Carp and Barbel through to Predator and Match Fishing, Gripz hooks now give a next-generation hook design which really are on another level. Yes, that is a huge statement to make but when you see the incredible amount of anglers converting to, and catching on, this new design...
