My goal is having Blacktail hook on every tail of fisherman’s rig, by supplying good quality hook at honest pricing so everyone can use them, and more people could go fishing.

Kwang Lee, former president of Chaeil Fishing Tackle and the retired IGFA World Record Holder for Yellowtail in 30 lb line class, caught his 63lb Yellowtail with Kumho Livebait hook #2/0. He introduced me to Kumho hooks 20 years ago, and they are great. If they are good enough for World Record Holder, it’s good enough for me.
