|Hookem began because of a demand for strong, long lasting fishing, durable products that were not currently being met in the market place at the time. As Mick loved to fish and had extensive knowledge in the fields required to develop and manufacture a range of gaffs that would not only be of the highest quality standards, but also be of an affordable price, he decided to look further into how he could achieve this.
He worked on the development and then showed his first prototype to some very experienced people from the industry with good background knowledge in the world of fishing. They had a great understanding of what was lacking and what improvements could be made on existing products and also ideas for new products as well. With his knowledge of manufacturing and their knowledge of the industry it proved to be a very worthwhile adventure. Some of the guys included Tim Simpson, Paul Worsteling, Neil Tedesco, and James Thackery, just to name a few. At the time he was overwhelmed with the response although probably not surprised. So many fisherman, including himself, were after not only a reliable well made product but also had many ideas on how to improve on the gear that was already out there.
A small project which had started out to build on his own Tackle collection soon developed into a large product line of Fishing Equipment that he is constantly building on and developing. Presently included in the range are Gaffs, Nets, Tailropes, Tagpoles, Release items and a great range of Accessories which includes a range of Lures. Please refer to our Products pages for some well detailed descriptions and photos of all our products.
