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. The shafts of the flying gaffs are swaged for uniform strength, eliminating unnecessary weight. The hook is mounted in a tough plastic insert and held in place by a length of 20lb test line or heavy rubber band tied to a stainless post affixed to the shaft. When a fish is gaffed, this line snaps, providing a clean and immediate release. A machined aluminium gimbal at the butt of the shaft secures the attachment rope. If dropped overboard, the gaff handle (minus hook) will float. Shafts are six feet 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. Available in either 8” or 10”, or the new reinforced 13” gape sizes. All AFTCO gaffs are made to comply with IGFA and NZSFC regulations.
