Decoy T-S21 for your belly hooks.
Traditional configuration for tail.

Those T-S21 lie flat on a table.
In practise that means you don't get hook rash on your lures, or the hooks getting hooked round the body (as very occasionally can happen).

Or use those nice double hooks from Veals that slip on without using a split ring. PH

Another vote for the VMC permas, cheap and reliable but the barbs can be a bit savage so i crush them down.
Had a pack of the Daiwa DT4601 which are very sharp out the box, cheap aswell, nice hooks.

Whats your thoughts on hook colour.....?
I was advised to always use silver hooks, rather than Black and have always gone with that since tbh...admittedly surface biased.

I use doubles on the backs of metals, and on Bad Boy bellies, and Hennie's, but prefer trebles and split rings on the usual HP's.
i have some doubles here but they are mostly brown hooks ,like salmon hooks ..
can you get them in silver..link would help if one can.
welded ,i dont like the open ones.
im hoping to have some made up from a hook manufacturer in Spain..and are waiting on a affirmative reply.they are worried about demand for it..
im hoping to convince them in it being a good idea.

I agree. I think split rings help.

You want short-shank salmon doubles probably.
These are usually welded, and the short shank would help with 'leverage' issues working against the lure.

I would think something like this, possibly?
States they are for 'all water', so I am assuming some salt water protection?

EDIT - SORRY, SCRUB THIS PLAN - Just clicked the eyes will be orientated wrong, unless you use two split rings in tandem.

Or, I guess you could just whip finish the shanks of those open ones?

That is not such a daft idea. Damn quick and easy to do, and those saltwater Owner ones are very good.

Gamakatsu SP-MH nothing comes close ,every lure i buy is dressed with them from the off these days ,size 2 for pretty much anything that will take it as they are oversized, or 3 on smaller lures that won't take a size 2 but i would say a 3 is pretty much a size 2 in most trebles, they gradually turn from silver to black but last a long time, super sticky sharp ,superb hooks ,not cheap but worth it.

They sound great...thanks for the info.
Funny how some hooks are over sized and some not.

Excellent! Top tip that. Going to try that thanks. Plus it’ll give me something to do changing a few over.
They’re the patch hooks?

i use different trebles you listed above but my best choice is the gamakatsu SP MH so i can better balance my lures (size 3-4-5-6 , depends of the lure size and the "buoyancy" i want => to make a lure suspend , i may mix different brands to achieve it )
