Korda Kaptor Hooks, Are They The Sharpest Hooks Ever?

After years of fishing using hooks from companies such as Korda, Fox and ESP I wasn’t expecting any change or improvement to my catch rate when using these hooks. Promised to be extra sharp and capped to prevent any damage to the hook point I was pleasantly surprised.

Korda hooks come very nicely presented and are very easy to use.

Im not sure if it was a confidence thing but my catch rate did improve from my local runs water. I think the theory is that carp pick up your hook bait more times than you really know about as they have a method of blowing the bait back out of their mouths so a sharper hook can help the hook to catch in the mouths better.

Korda Kaptor hooks are a great allrounder hook, used to build rigs such as the standard hair rig to more complicated and complex rigs. Kaptor hooks are not just a carp hook, I’ve had many species on these hooks such as chub and even strong enough for catfish.

The streamline packaging is also a great feature, designed to fit perfectly in any tackle box no matter the quantity. Kaptor hooks come in many sizes, colours and patterns for all types of situation and is worth have a few different sizes in the tackle box.

They come in sizes 12, 10, 8, 6 and 4. They come in two camo coatings gravel and weed. There are three different patterns in the range Choddy, Wide gape and Kurv shank.

If you don’t know where to start I personally would go for size 8/6 Kurv shank hooks because they are for versatile for creating many different rig types.

You can find these hooks in your local tackle shop or simply find them online from sites such as amazon.

  1. These hooks are by far the worse hooks I have ever used when fishing in hungry I had 10 runs with a 0% catch rate while my mate was on the same set up apart from the hooks with 4 runs and a 100% catch rate Nash all the way

    • Hi Ryan Thanks for the comment!

      Sorry to hear your bad experience using the Korda Kaptor hooks it’s always a downer losing fish. I have no affiliation with Korda but I do use there hooks in 80/90% of my own fishing and have never had many issues with them. If your losing fish this could be caused by many factor such as length of rig and leads your using or just bad luck 🙁 I recently did a Carp Hook Shootout ( and it surprised me how many good results the Nash Twister hooks had in my tests, so I will be using Nash hooks in my own fishing in the future!! Good luck with the carp fishing! Mike
