Gamakatsu

Gamakatsu
Gamakatsu® started producing fish hooks in 1955. At that time, they were the smallest hook manufacturer in Japan and all of their hooks were made by hand. Eight years later they introduced a new automated heating facility which catapulted them to the forefront of the Japanese market, and in 1974, they introduced fully automated hook making machines.  

In 1992 Gamakatsu USA inc. was established to provide Gamakatsu brand hooks to the U.S. market, followed by SPRO®, the official Gamakatsu exclusive agent, established in the Netherlands in 1994 to service the European market.

Since the beginning, Gamakatsu has strictly stuck to the theme, "Nature and Technology". They work hard to develop new, hi-tech products that benefit the outdoorsman without adversely effecting the environment. They are always searching for new ways to make the existing products better in addition to constantly looking for unique products, not yet invented.
