OPST Swing Hooks

All OPST Swing Hooks come barbless , causing the minimum possible amount of damage and stress to fish and people alike. The slightly upturned eye produces an optimal line of pull into the fish, and enables proper fly assembly when using shanks, tubes and string leeches. The round bend produces superior hook strength and holding ability. OPST Swing Hook points are offset, exposing a larger purchase area to fish, resulting in more hookups and fewer lost fish. With their upturned points, our short-shanked hooks resemble circle hooks, and as such they tend to produce more hookups in the corner of the mouth than a normal straight-shanked J-hook. All in all, OPST Swing Hooks are highly specialised, fly fishing specific, fish friendly hooks that will penetrate instantly and hold longer.

Available in sizes 6, 4, 3, 2, 1 and 1/0.

Olympic Peninsula Skagit Tactics is a group of steelheaders who focus on Skagit-style swing fishing for everything from king salmon to smallmouth bass. The Skagit River and the Olympic Peninsula have defined OPST's products, the way they fish, and their philosophy.


OPST's program revolves around Skagit casting, the most recently innovated "Spey" or anchor-based type of casting. It is THE preferred methodology because of its wide latitude of angling versatility.


The Sustained Anchor is key to Skagit casting versatility and OPST strives to optimize that effect by utilizing SAS (Sustained Anchor Systemology). By concentrating on SAS, the utmost potential of Skagit casting is achieved. The entire concept is called "Pure Skagit".
