    Hook history is quite interesting. They have been around for thousands of years but I bet even back then they were talking about the one that got away...W

    I use Aberdeen hooks quite a bit, but not very often for catfishing. Aberdeens are made of light wire, bend very easily, and are good for pulling out of snags such as brush piles. And a minnows hooked with an Aberdeen usually lives much longer than on a thicker wired hook. Disadvantages--they bend very easily, and can straighten out when fighting a big fish. That's why I use them mainly for bream, crappie, and white/yellow bass.
