This wiki has been updated 7 times since it was first published in February of 2019. Everyone has their own top secret method when it comes to fishing. Whether it's finding the perfect spot, using irresistible bait, or harnessing advanced technology, it's easy to get so caught up in the details that you forget the basics, and a good hook can make the difference between snagging a monster and coming up empty-handed. If all else fails, you can use our preferred strategy: lying. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

February 13, 2019:

It's important to realize that the "best" fishing hook will vary depending on what species you're targeting, as there isn't really a one-size-fits-all solution. To that end, we placed the greatest premium on versatility and resilience in our rankings, and our top selections should be suitable for just about any type of fish you come across (save maybe a great white shark or a blue whale).

After getting his bachelor’s from the University of Texas, Quincy Miller moved out to Los Angeles, where he soon found work as a copywriter and researcher, specializing in health and wellness topics for a major online media brand. Quincy is also knowledgeable about home improvement, as he’s had extensive experience with everything from insulation to power tools to emergency room trips, sometimes in that order. Sharing a home with three dogs and a couple of cats has forced Quincy to learn as much as he can about pet supplies, animal nutrition and, most importantly, the best ways to tackle the mountains of fur that accumulate in every corner of your home.
