The Mustad 1X fine wire Aberdeen Jig Hook makes a great platform for creating some high quality jigs for fresh or saltwater fishing. The 90º-bend eye is perfect for deep-water presentation. The angle of the hook will secure that when the fish strikes the jig is pulled straight up providing the best opportunity for a secure hookup. The long shanked hook features Mustad's own Black Nickel finish, which are 4 times as rust resistant as traditional Black Nickel. Chemically sharpened high carbon steel.
