Exactly what is a "natural fall" and natural for what?

As far a what natual fall really is in relation to a real worm, they move around a lot when put in water, so if you want to imitate natural, that is what natural does. Un-natural would be a even/level/rapid fall as would happen with the subject hook.
I choose a "natural fall" for my presentation, the fish like it.

The Kahle-style hook provides excellent hookup ratios, but ONLY if you use a subtle sweep-set and NOT a hammer-it-home hookset. I've caught hundreds of bass with this hook and its never once failed me in any way.
If rigging weightless, I use a 2/0 Gamagatsu finesse hook, or, the weightless version of the above Northland hook.

I use all 3 weighted sizes of the Falcon Lures hooks, as well as the unweighted. You made the right choice, they are the best on the market for 5",6" and 7" senkos/stick baits. I am still searching for a better weedless hook for 4" baits, I don't care much for the Gamakatsu weedless widegap finesse hooks, or the Owner weedless wacky hooks.
Do you think these will do ok for throwing trick worms?

But they look interesting and I can think of a few other uses I would like to utilize them with.
