Snaphooks & Clips


The plastic snaphooks are used to add some weights or floats on the longline. You fix them by making dedicated buckles on the longline at required hook spacing. If a weight gets hooked up on the bottom, the snap hook will hold a weight of 50 kg before breaking and you will retrieve your longline and fish.

The snaphooks can be dyed to recognize the weight used.


Clips are mainly used for tuna or hake longline fishing. The clip is placed directly on the hook. It is used to modify the configuration of the longline by adding some weights or floats.

This system allows the fisherman to directly target bottom,midwater or pelagic fish species by configuring the longline to suit each particular species.
