This gaff is designed for anglers who catch bigger fish. The head is made from 8mm diameter stainless steel and fitted to a wooden handle that floats. The gaff features a heavy-duty protective sleeve for the hook, to reduce chances of accidental injury or damage to the point. TIP: Never stand the gaff upright. Always lay it flat and keep the hook point covered with the heavy-duty sleeve to maintain sharpness and avoid injury.
