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. In 1963 they introduced a new automated heating facility which catapulted them to the forefront of the Japanese Market.
Gamakatsu® is the leading fish hook manufacturer in Japan, and for that matter world wide. Gamakatsu® is constantly testing new materials and striving to improve their products which already set the standard for the rest of the industry. In 1992 Gamakatsu® USA inc. was established to provide Gamakatsu® brand hooks to the U.S. market.
