    I cleaned out my tackle box today. Had a chuckle at the 2/0 hooks I bought years ago for catfishing. Well, I obviously need to upsize. Can someone let me know the difference in Circle, Octopus, & Octopus Circle hooks. Do you let the fish set itself like circles. Why do some have offsets some don't? Also does anyone know where to order OWNER hooks online? Thanks for any replies!!

    thanks kscathunter, I have the catalog. I was just wondering the purpose of having the eye bent back/or not. And the advantage of having an offset/or not. Anyone who has used any of these give me your opinion.

    Hooks with upturned eyes are designed to snell, so you get a straight pull on the shank of the hook, but will work with the conventional knot's.
