VanFook PLB-49F is a premium quality JDM micro barb single hook developed for stream plugging. Compatible with a wide range of lures used in mountain stream fishing ranging from 40mm to 60mm class size (1.5″-2.5″). The unique shape of PLB-49F offers excellent hooking performance on a wide variety of tackle, regardless of line type and rod action. Made in Japan using a medium gauge wire, the shaft is flattened, increasing wire strength and hardness so it does not easily bend. Finished with a PTFE coating, PLB-49F is highly corrosion-resistant and offers smooth hook penetration.
