In my opinion, the number one hook company in the UK. From their size 6 semi circles through to their 8/0 Big Mouth Extras, their hooks have proved both match winners and the number one hook for specimen hunters. Often half the price of very similar hook patterns!
The rest of their range, in particular their rig/shock monofilaments and their Fluorocarbons are also excellent.

I've used these hooks since their introduction in 1992. There is a size and pattern for every specie of fish from mullet to common skate. Not once have I been let down using a Varivas hook so I'll be using them for the forseeable future!

Have used Varivas hooks since first sold by veals mail order. Big mouths for larger baits have proved themselves many times. Strong enough to hold large hard fighting fish,but if snagged they can often be sprung out. The saltwater champions size 3 are great flattie hooks and can handle a bigger fish if one should come along. The semi circles can improve hook up rates with bream while still being easy to bait up and size 8 has proved to be an excellent mullet hook. All hooks have very sharp points and neat small barbs.

I have been using Varivas hooks for years now. A fantastic strong and sharp hook I use the Big Mouth Extras for the majority of my fishing, I will not use or consider any other hook. The BMX have never failed with bullying big fish over rocks and kelp. Various other brands I have used in the past I have lost fish due to hooks straightening out and snapping. I also now use Varivas sport and the shock leader, both are fantastic, hard wearing and very well priced. With performance and price like this I do not see myself switching brands any time soon. Keep up the good work Varivas!
