Halibut Hook




Traditional Northwest Coast style bentwood halibuts hooks are made from Pacific Yew (Taxus brevifolia) wood that is steamed until flexible and bent around a form. A bone barb is lashed on with Sitka Spruce (Picea sitchensis) or Western Redcedar (Thuja plicata) roots and a Stinging Nettle (Urtica dioica) leader is carefully fastened.
