The VMC Mystic Predator Hooks come under the beady eye of Angler's Mail tackle editor Richard Howard. He's the No.1 products inspector, checking out loads of quality kit every week.

VMC have released over a dozen specialist, high-end hook patterns under the Mystic Predator banner.

They’re designed by VMC’s professional team of anglers, covering modern predator fishing techniques for pike, zander and perch.

The VMC Spinshot hooks, perfect for drop shotting, are simple to set up, having a built-in swivel, to eliminate line twist.

The Swingin’ Ruby Jig pattern, coming with an articulated jig head, presents soft plastic lures more naturally.

The Heavy Duty Fixed Blade Swimbait hooks are ideal for targeting pike in weed close to the surface.

There are even some Wacky Weedless hooks, for rigging plastic worms the correct way, along with other patterns.

I can tell that a lot of attention to detail has gone into these patterns. Check out to see the full range.

Price: from £2.49 a pack.
