Fishing with a Hook Angel

Hook Angel

Every now and then you come across a really good fishing product and say to yourself …. Now why didn’t I think of that? Well a classic example of this is the Hook Angel.


It’s an innovative and patent-pending product developed by James Ferriss of Deridder, Louisiana that definitely has a place in your tacklebox.


So how does it work?

Well it’s a simple process where you can easily add (or remove) weight to a hook for fishing most any type of bait. And the beautiful part is that no tools are needed to apply or  remove these unique circular weights.

The weights come in a gold 1/32-oz (#1) and a red 1/16-oz. size (#2) and have a special V-slot in the center that allows you add a hook but it will not come off unless the barb is aligned once again with the slot.


The weights are made from tungsten which unlike lead is environmentally friendly. Tungsten is 1.6 heavier than lead and 2.3 times heavier than brass or steel. These small weights can be added to just about any single hook up to a 5/0 or 6/0 .. depending on the brand of hook used.

The weights allow you to easily control the sinking rate of any bait you are fishing and the gold and red colors offer a fish attracting flash as they are sinking.

Setting up a wacky-rig with the Hook Angel is so easy. Simply place the soft plastic on the hook, position the Angel Hook weight and that’s it.


So what if I am fishing the wacky-worm rig and the weather gets windy? Well this is what is so great about the Hook Angel. Just add as many weights as needed until you can fish the bait properly. If it gets less windy just remove a weight or two. Very Simple.


If you are using one of your favorite spinnerbaits but need to cast it further or fish it deeper, simply place one of the Angel Weights over the barb of the spinnerbait hook, add your favorite plastic trailer and you are ready to go.




There are so many ways that these little weights can be used.







But that’s not all. If you want to position Hook Angels at a specific spot on the hook just add a silicon Hook Angel Bait Button Aide and it’s done.

I have also used the Hook Angel when fishing creature baits, flukes, buzzbaits, grubs, tubes and small swimbaits. It works great and is so easy to change or remove weight to fit your fishing needs.

It’s a great little product and I love the packaging. The label lists Proverbs 22:6 – Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.  Amen on that!
