Carp season is slowly taking off. In some places in Poland it already caught some decent pace, while in other parts of the country, e.g. in northern-east, where reservoirs still get covered with ice overnight, preparations are still in progress.

Mikado carp fishing hooks - Territory Long Shank

Last time I described the Wide Gape [link] hook with a short shank and wide bend. This time I want to talk about a decidedly different product. The Long Shank has a ring that’s angled to the inside, a narrow bend and, of course, a long shank.  This type of hook is usually use...
