Covert Dark Mugga Hooks:

The legendary Mugga hook pattern has been pivotal in the capture of countless big carp. The latest Covert Dark Mugga hooks have been given a facelift with several key improvements that make them even better!

Firstly, we have totally re-specified the shape and length of the Mugga’s point so they are longer and much sharper than before. The new long tapered points are a massive step up and ensure the hook pricks and penetrates even quicker.

Next, we have swapped over to the new stripped down Covert Dark plating. This new finish still offers excellent camouflage thanks to the matt finish, and also ensures that we keep the sharpest possible point on the hook as it is a single electroplated finish and the reduction in handling during the finishing process means the points remain immaculate and razor sharp.

We’ve also upgraded to a micro barb on all the new Covert Dark Hooks. This offers two major benefits. Firstly, many commercial fisheries require anglers to use patterns with small barbs as it is kinder to the fish’s mouth, and secondly micro barbed hooks are stronger as less wire is cut out to form the barb. This combined with the longer chemically etched point has made the Covert Dark Mugga a truly awesome hook.

If you look at the design of the Mugga it’s not hard to see why it offers unrivalled hooking potential when used with a variety of hooklink materials. The aggressive hooking action and strong hook holds that the pattern gives are due to a combination of key features working perfectly together.

The combination of a sweeping, slightly curve shank and a 25° in-turned eye cause the hook to flip as soon as the hooklink tightens or the hook eye reaches the edge of fish’s lip. This unique action means that the hook will take hold firmly in the corner of the mouth or in the bottom lip without having to add shrink tube to improve a less effective ‘similar’ pattern.

After this the orientation between the hook eye and the super sharp straight point creates the best possible angle to aid the hook penetrating quickly and securely. Simply, this means you will land more fish.

Covert Dark Mugga hooks are constructed using a forged, high carbon wire that has been double tempered to ensure they are amazingly strong relative to the wire gauge.

*Heavier gauge ‘Continental Mugga’ hooks are available for anglers that need the strongest possible Mugga hooks.

Covert Dark Chod Hooks:

Is the new Covert Dark Chod hook the ultimate chod and hinged stiff rig hook? Well if they weren’t before the Covert Dark treatment they certainly are now!

Why? We have implemented totally re-profiled hook points; making them longer, with an amazing refined tapered shape and even sharper than ever before. Realistically, just on its own this one change elevates the Chod pattern to a whole new level, but that’s not all we have done…

We have changed the protective plating to a single layer matt black electroplated finish that ensures the hook points stays amazingly sharp. Finally, we have incorporated micro barbs on all of our patterns so that they can now be used at a wider range of commercial fisheries. This also has the benefit of maintaining the hook’s strength as the micro barb reduces the amount of wire carved out to create the barb. Chod Hooks need to be strong to cope with big hard fighting carp and that’s exactly what they are!

The pattern features a wide gape, non reversed bend and medium length shank, with a 15 degree out-turned eye that ensures that materials like Trip Wire and fluorocarbons exit the inside of the eye at the optimum angle (doesn’t close up the gape), encouraging the hook to turn aggressively with a whipping style Knotless, Snell and Domhoff knot.

The medium length shank and long tapered point are angled slightly in-turned towards one another, which is a critical attribute, as it provides the strongest possible hook holds as this aids penetration and a firm hook hold will inevitably mean more fish hooked are landed.

Covert Dark Continental Mugga Hooks:

Firstly, we have re-specified the shape and length of the Continental Mugga hook’s point so they are longer, slimmer and much sharper than before. The new long tapered points are a major improvement and the shape and point now ensures the hook pricks even quicker and penetrates easier.

Next, we have swapped over to the new stripped down Covert Dark plating. This new finish still offers excellent camouflage, thanks to the matt finish, and also ensures that we keep the sharpest possible point on the hook as it is a single electroplated finish. The reduction in handling during the finishing process means the points remain immaculate and razor sharp.

We’ve also upgraded to a micro barb on all the new Covert Dark Hooks. This offers two major benefits. Firstly, many commercial fisheries require anglers to use patterns with small barbs as it is kinder to the fish’s mouth, and secondly micro barbed hooks are stronger as less wire is cut out to form the barb.

The ‘Continental’ version of the Mugga hook is made from significantly stronger, heavier gauge forged, double tempered high carbon steel. Although the hooks are 30% stronger the wire used does not make them heavy or bulky. This extra strong wire means that the Continental Mugga offers brute strength required for extreme fishing situations, such as fishing for big fish in heavy weed or near snags.

If you study the design of the Mugga hook range it’s not hard to see why the Mugga patterns offer unrivalled hooking potential when used with a variety of hooklink materials. The aggressive hooking action and strong hook holds they give are due to a combination of key features working perfectly together. The combination of a sweeping, slightly curve shank and a 25˚ in-turned eye cause the hook to flip as soon as the hooklink tightens or the hook eye reaches the edge of fish’s lip. This unique action means that the hook will take hold firmly in the corner of the mouth or in the bottom lip without having to add shrink tube to improve a less effective ‘similar’ pattern…

After this the orientation between the hook eye and the razor sharp straight point creates the best possible angle to aid the hook penetrating quickly and securely. Simply put, this means you will land more fish and suffer from fewer hook pulls.

Since their launch in 2012 the Continental Mugga has proven itself as an extraordinary strong pattern that has grown in popularity due to their reliability and performance. If you’re looking for a hook that combines awesome hooking power with superb strength, you should take at look at these…
