Product Overview

With Breakaway Hook For Gaffing Powerful Fish!

The slim, tapered tips of AFTCO’s Taper-Tip Flying Gaffs slice through water faster and with greater accuracy to minimize the problems of gaffing powerful fish. Like the Taper-Tip Aluminum Gaffs, the shafts of these Flying Gaffs are "swaged" for uniform strength from end to end, thereby eliminating unnecessary weight. The hook seats in a tough plastic insert fitted into the gaff tip, and is held in place by a length of 20-lb. test line tied to a steel post affixed to the shaft. When a fish is gaffed, this line snaps, providing a clean and immediate release. A machined aluminum gimbal at the butt of the shaft secures the attachment rope; and along with the plastic insert in the tip, prevents water from seeping into the shaft. If dropped overboard, the gaff handle (minus hook) will float! Shafts are 6' 7" long, with 1-3/8" butt diameters fitted with two black non-slip grips, and anodized with a rich Gold finish for beauty and resistance to corrosion.

  • Plastic Insert Seals Out Water To Prevent Corrosion
  • Line Snaps To Release The Hook From The Shaft
  • Handle only, hooks sold separately
