AFTCO FLYING GAFF SET / TAPERED TIP ALUMINIUM GAFF WITH FLYING HOOK

The slim, tapered tips of AFTCO's Taper-Tip Flying Gaffs slice through water faster and 
with greater accuracy to minimize the problems of gaffing powerful fish. Like our 
Taper-Tip Aluminum Gaffs, the shafts of our Flying Gaffs are "swaged" for uniform strength 
from end to end, thereby eliminating unnecessary weight. The hook seats in a tough plastic 
insert fitted into the gaff tip, and is held in place by a length of 20-lb. test line tied to a steel 
post affixed to the shaft. When a fish is gaffed, this line snaps, providing a clean and 
immediate release. A machined aluminum gimbal at the butt of the shaft secures the 
attachment rope; and along with the plastic insert in the tip, prevents water from seeping 
into the shaft. If dropped overboard, the gaff handle (minus hook) will float! Shafts are 6' 7" 
long, with 1-3/8" butt diameters fitted with two black non-slip grips, and anodized with a rich 
Gold finish for beauty and resistance to corrosion. The barbed hooks are made from 
corrosion-resistant stainless steel and will not straighten out in regular use. The triangular points 
give better penetration and are easy to sharpen. AFTCO Flying Gaff Hooks are available 
in 8 and 10-inch sizes. Either of these hooks will fit into the same shaft.

Overall length with 10" 25cm head 220cm.

Overall length with 8" 20cm head 218cm.

AFTCO Flying Gaffs should be rigged with soft, 5/8" diameter, 3-strand nylon rope spliced directly 
to the hook eye. IGFA allows a maximum combined length of 25 feet of total rope and hook, 
but for most boats, the rope should only be as long as the farthest distance a crew member 
can reach with the gaff from its point of attachment to the boat. 
Flying gaff hooks should be tied in to the stainless attaching post on the aluminum handle 
using a single turn of 20 or 30lb line. 
The nylon rope should be stretched tight and passed around the end of the handle, 
through the gimbal, and back up past the second handle grip, where it can be secured 
with a couple of wraps of 1" masking tape. 
The rope should be gripped to the handles by the gaffer, and released as soon as the gaff hook 
is planted into the fish and breaks loose from the handle.
