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 30-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 or lustrous Black finish for beauty and resistance to corrosion. The barbed hooks are made from corrosion-resistant stainless steel and will not straighten out in use. The triangular points give better penetration and are easy to sharpen. AFTCO Flying Gaff Hooks are available in 5, 6, 8, 10, & 13-inch sizes. All four fit in the same shaft.

Top Notch Flying Gaff
I bought a rigged flying gaff setup with a 5" hook for halibut in Alaska. Very heavy duty and nicely made. There may be better flying gaffs out there but I doubt it. Not cheap but worth it. Real quality.
