Hook Links, Wacker Silky Soft & Coated

Three distinctive hook links that will cover nearly any fishing situation.

Removable Skin Hook Link (WB2HLRS): This is the braid of choice for making combi rigs, Whithy Pool rigs and anti-blowout rigs. The plastic coating provides stiffness to the rig as well as abrasion resistance. The inner braid that is exposed when the coating is peeled off is strong and supple. The coating is a dark, moss green and the core braid a lighter weedy green. Blends in well with most bottoms. 20m spool in a see-through dispenser that clearly shows how much line is left.


Touchdown Silky Soft Hook Link (WB2HLTD): A fast sinking, thin and supple hook link. It has a specific gravity greater than that of water so it sinks and hugs the bottom - out of sight of line-shy fish, For best results, pre-wet the line to eliminate surface tension. Dark green to fade into the background. 20m spool in a see-through dispenser that clearly shows how much line is left.


Snag Proof 30lb and 40lb (WB2HLSP-30, WB2HLSP-40) is a tough, abrasion resistant hook link. Dark green to blend into the bottom. 20m spool in a see-through dispenser that clearly shows how much line is left.


Because of its softness, Wacker Silky Soft Fast Sinking hooklink braid (WB2HLFS) is even more “bottom hugging” than other sinking hooklinks. In fact, it’s one of the finest sinking hooklinks available in the market. Once flat on the bottom there is no way a line shy carp can detect it.


The Neutral Buoyancy (WB2HLNB) has a specific gravity very nearly the same as water. The extreme softness and suppleness allows this hooklink to move with water or to follow a hook in a very natural way, fooling even the most experienced and suspicious carp. Ultra thin, round and as smooth as silk. It is safe to say that this is one of the finest hooklinks available!


You have never seen anything like the Anvil Hooklink (WB2HKA). It is an innovative new hooklink braid made of a new type of material which is incredibly fast sinking, supple and soft. It will hug the bottom so closely it is absolutely impossible for a line shy carp to detect, even after having sucked in the bait. This hooklink is also very easy to knot, maintaining almost 100% of the original breaking strength.



Fluorocarbon, Wacker 25m 20lb

This line has two desirable characteristics - it is virtually invisible in the water and it has a high abrasion resistance. These attributes make it a great hook link material and a great snag leader.

Use this fluorocarbon and a hook with an out-turned eye to make stiff rigs. The fish will have great difficulty seeing the line and also, great difficulty ejecting the hook after taking the bait.

This is a high quality fluorocarbon, durable and easy to tie securely. 20m spool, 20lb/9.1kg break strength, 0.40mm diameter.

Mantis Dark, Kryston 25lb 20m

The hooklink that holds more records than Michael Schumacher has had a facelift.  (Who?)

This legendary hooklength needs little introduction having already accounted for three World and many National and International records. This new version fills the gap for those fishing over dark silty areas. Kryston have purposely avoided the mistake of giving this stunning product a solid black finish even though it's easier to do so, why? Because when you look carefully at the colour and composition of silt it is far from black.

A solid black hooklength is possibly the worst choice of colour to use for good presentation. Ask any fly fisherman what is the best early season fly to use for hungry stockies, the answer will be anything as long as it's black. It's by far the best colour to attract attention because it stands out like a silhouette, even over silt!

Silt is decomposed organic matter consisting of weed, leaves, wood and all manner of substances but unlike coal it varies in colour. Tiny highlights can be seen throughout its surface giving a random mottled appearance. It has long been known that Silkworm with its dark grey fragmented finish is arguably the finest and proven super-braid for fishing over silt and for years has been highly recommended by many leading writers.

The finish of Mantis Dark mimics Silkworm and is perfect for presenting bait over silty areas. It has all the advantages and pedigree of its sister products incredible track record. The multi-coating process gives it a tough durable finish and once removed gives you a stunning variety of modern day rig options.

Kryston have often been asked for a black hooklength, we resisted and waited to give you something far better.

Rigidity Stiff Rig 20m 15lb

Fox Rigidity is formulated with a unique molecular ‘cross-linker’ which creates an ultra stiff monofilament, purpose for tying modern anti-eject stiff rigs.
In certain situations stiff rigs can provide an important advantage over other forms of presentation. Rigs tied with Rigidity can be extremely difficult for wary carp to successfully eject once they have picked up the bait. The stiffness of the material acts as a boom, which automatically extends the hookbait out, and away from the lead. This ensures that as soon as the carp picks up the bait it is in full, instant contact with the lead creating the ultimate in bolt rig efficiency.

Rigidity has an extremely hard outer surface, which will stand up to the toughest underwater terrain. At the same time the clear finish makes it very difficult to detect and helps it to blend in with any surroundings.
