Cox & Rawle

I have today recieved some hooks for review.

Forty years ago Bob Cox and John Rawle discovered the benefits of casting baits away from the boat and went on to develop Up-Tiding. At that time the average UK boat angler used 30lb to 50lb breaking strain line and used a 2m long boat rod capable of landing a whale.

On the other end of the line was either a brass wire 3-hook paternoster or crude wire lead clip, both were held on the sea bed by the use of a 250g pot lead. In those days hooks were taken out of the packet blunt and sharpened, or not, by the angler. Things had to change, thus Cox and Rawle was born.
