WHAT'S HOT IN THE SHOP
The all new Instinct Performance Rigs have arrived and with new additions to hook sizes, there is now a rig for every application. The hook size has now expanded from 2/0 all the way through to 7/0 and there are now 5 new colour combinations that look absolutely delicious! With the introduction of the smaller 2/0 and 3/0 hook sizes this really opens up the surf salmon market and we expect to see exceptional results over the course of the Winter months. These two sizes also provide a great option for those of you who continue to get stuck into the pinky snapper that take residence on the reefs around Ricketts Point and Mornington throughout the cooler months.
Here is a quick guide on how to pick the ideal size of performance rig for your application.
2/0 - 3/0
