Gaffing Fish

Whether handling the leader for a release, or getting ready to gaff a tournament-winning fish or just a good night’s dinner, these are the moments that most mates get paid for. Most store bought gaffs do not come with any friction tape on them,which is not a good thing. Although a couple of foam handholds might be nice as well, some additional friction tape added to the handle of any gaff does two things: One, it keeps your hands from slipping when they are wet; and two, you put the tape only as far down the hook as you want to reach.
