Fish Hook Patterns
Of the old English patterns we have such as the Aberdeen, Limerick, Kendall, Carlisle, etc., and some of our later hooks are the Virginia, Cincinnati Bass, and others that suggest their origin by their names. As will be noted by referring to the illustration which shows a few patterns only (there are hundreds of patterns), all differ in some way, either in length of shank, style of bend, side bend, or shape of point. Each angler has his favorite style of hook for each kind of fishing, and while some are better than others there is not as much difference in catching and holding qualities as some imagine.
