Swim Jig Hook

Recommended Posts

I am new to building jigs and I am already addicted to the hobby. I built some swim jigs last night with the smj-3-sf using a mustad 30 degree 32886bln hook.

My question: what is a light wire hook that will fit this mold without doing any modifications?

I can't vouch for it but the Mustad 32724 NP is a 28° hook which I am sure will fit in the mold which is for a 30° hook. 2° on such a small distance won't be a factor as far as fit goes. I do know that the 32724 hooks are thinner in diameter than the 32886 hooks. Hope this helps. There aren't many variables unless you go to a thinner 60° hook and bend the hook eye. However I wouldn't recommend that as you may stress the hook eye and it might break.

Thank you, I will try that hook and see if I like it.

The Mustad 32724 NP fits that mold perfect!

It is .045" thick compared to the 32886BLN at .057"

I use the 4/0 in all three sizes
