Eagle Claw Shaw Grigsby High-Performance Hooks
it's place in my world
In this day and age of millions of products, This hook I have used for probally 10 years maybe,I dont recall where I first got them from ,but in certain circunstances it is invaluable.
I use this hook when i am using a thin bodied tube.It keeps the tube on straight with out bunching up.It also is very good at hooking up and keeping the fish on.I live in Manitoba Canada and all fishing is Barbless ,so sticking power is very inportant to me.

Best Hooks Made IMO
Alot of reviews have this hook as a great tube hook.....and it is. I just want you guys to know that it is the best worm hook on the planet IMO. I used these hooks years ago but fell out of favor with them when I started to use screw in weights to peg the worm. These days I have switched to tungsten weights and the problem solved by my old screw in weights was back. The worm won't stay up after a few casts. Finally I remebered these Shaw grigsby hooks and ordered a few bags. Not only is my worm slipage problem solved but my hook up percentage is throught the roof. These hooks almost always hook the bass out of the side jaw. They don't require a bone jarring hook set just a good sweep and the fish will hook itself perfectly. I now rarely break off on the hook set.....(I was breaking off from to hard a hook set) that seemed necessary to keep fish buttoned with other hooks. These hooks bite like a circle hook, are plenty sharp as is, hold baits perfectly, and will increase your hook up percentage. I use these on all my worms, creatures, senkos, lizzards, and any other soft plastics fished on bottom. They have helped me cash a check in the last 3 tournaments I have fished. Zero spitouts or shake offs and only two break offs. The breakoffs were likely my fault for not retieing and for setting the hook like a barbarian. You will be pleased.

First Experience A Great One
I had the oppurtunity to use this hook for the first time last night while throwing some tubes. To say the least it was awesome. We were flippin and pitchin into some nasty weeds and the bait never once slid down the hook. The hook lays perfectly next to the tube and didn't get snagged once. Great hook and well worth the money.

Great Plunking hook
I was fishing with a buddy and I was using the traditional straight shank flipping hook for plunking. He was using the HP hooks and I missed more bites than him until I wised up and borrowed a hook from him. They work great for smaller profile baits like tubes, craw tubes or other smaller creature baits.
