original tankichi hooks

Post by melkapule » Wed Oct 04, 2017 12:47 pm

Can anyone give me information on these Japanese homemade hooks? I hope some local Nisei or sansei can recall stories passed down from ancestors. Or anyone else willing to share.

I remember using these Tankichi hooks in late 60's...to early 70's.... They were popular and you could buy them at any fishing supply stores..

I do not know any history....they were known to be the best hooks to use in those days...some came with Xs. or thicker hooks

Maybe is up brothers may have some history on them..?

Aloha
