Hook Sizes

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for a chart or something that gives info on the the physical size of hooks relative to their nominal size...meaning I want to know the dimensions of various styles of hooks for each commercially available size. Basically, I want to be able to measure the gap of a hook (I have a micrometer), refer to the chart and know what size that hook is.

 

I found this, but it's not quite what I'm looking for. There are many sizes of various styles not included...for example, look at the octopus hooks...they only show three sizes, and where are the real big trebles? Also, this chart doesn't actually give dimensions, but just reproduces examples in actual size.

If anyone has a more inclusive chart, I'd appreciate it.

 

Thanks.

Fishnwire, you have your work cut out for you as there is no internationally recognized standard for fish hook sizes. You'll have to do them one manufacturer at a time. There are no more than 5-6 countries producing big name hooks....USA, Finland, Norway etc...

 

Size charts will be similar but not exactly the same.

 

Good luck.

Darn...It had occurred to me that that might be the case, Roy. Hopefully I can still find something that will act as a general guide though.
