    The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he, who in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

    Super specialist barbel hooks have been very reliable for me in this and other sizes, for barbel and also carp.

    Gardner Target Specimen hooks, they go down to a size 16 as well.

    The 12's are bombproof.

    I like the Nash Fang Gapers, the older version was particularly strong, but the new ones are still good. The Gardner Target Specimen are also a good hook.

    Gardner for me, either as Sam said or their new ones branded as 'dark' or something...

    Why does it it have to be a wide gape? The Partridge Barbel are awesome hooks!

    I’ve always rated the kamasan wide gape specialist hook
