VMC Inline Single Hooks
The VMC ILS inline single hook was designed for one reason, to replace treble hooks on large fresh and saltwater lures.ILS hooks are made of super strong forged carbon steel,chemically sharpened so that they come out of the package razor sharp, and have several layers of a proprietary coating allowing them to hold up in a harsh salt water environment without corroding.
Single hooks offer many advantages over treble hooks for both anglers and the fish they are targeting.A single hook matched properly to the size of the lure will have a wider gap then a treble allowing much surer hookups and resulting in few thrown hooks.Switching treble hooks out to single hooks will lead to few snags and fewer lost lures.Single hooks are also much easier to remove from a fish resulting in less time out of the water for fish you mean to release.
Often anglers will choose to switch out one treble for a single hook while leaving others in place.Primarily changing out the tail hook while leaving the belly hook as a treble since it sits properly on the lure.The eye configuration of the ILS hook aims to rectify this situation! Rotating the eye 90 degrees from the traditional position allows the hook point to run in proper orientation off a lure’s belly ring with a single split ring attached.
