been having a chat with a few fellow canal heads n we have been debating the best general hook for canal fishing. i have been using the B511 think its a great hook. was just wondering what others had to say ???[:T]
Got to be the Tubertini series 2 or the 2T for general work glad to see it's still about after all these years found some Ignesti series 1 & 2 as I was looking thought the box the other day the series 1 was a great B/Worm hook for caster work the old kamasan B560's still got three boxes of those  also found some Gamakatsu 6315's that survived great for B/punch.
For years as far I can remember,I've been using the 511 in winter and 611 in summer for the canals.But the last couple years,when the going is hard,I use the PR30 and PR35,depends on what bait I'm using [:T]
i have had nothing but trouble with the mp1's in size 22, snapping up the shank, snapping on the bend etc but in 24's they are perfect along with the old pr31's. for maggots etc all i use is b511's and pr30's
