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 triangular points give better penetration and are easy to sharpen. AFTCO Flying Gaff Hooks are available in 5", 6", 8" and 10" sizes. All four fit in the same shaft. Please be sure to order your AFTCO Flying gaff handle seperatly. Available custom rigged with twenty-five feet of high quality nylon rope.
AFTCO Flying Gaff Handle
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 20-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.

AFTCO Straight Gaff
AFTCO Taper-Tip aluminum fishing gaffs are available in a traditional rich Gold and also their popular lustrous Black finishes - both anodized for lasting beauty and resistance to corrosion. The shafts are made from corrosion-resistant 6061 T6 marine aluminum and they are "swaged" for uniform strength from end to end, but with no unnecessary weight. All models are fitted with soft but rugged black grips molded from the same non-slip material found on the finest fishing rods. Black vinyl butt caps seal out corrosive moisture and prevent deck scarring. These gaff hooks are fashioned from stainless steel rods, with easy-to-sharpen triangular points.

AFTCO Fiberglass Gaff
AFTCO tapered Fiberglass Gaffs feature special thick-walled, super strong, yet lightweight E-glass handle construction, custom-designed for extreme strength and rigidity. All of their fiberglass handles are rolled on proprietary mandrels using specific tapers developed by AFTCO, and are fitted in their factory with the same stainless steel hooks used in the popular Taper-Tip Aluminum Gaffs. With their exclusive "wedge-lok" assembly process is used to secure all of the hooks into the E-glass handles. Featuring a rich-looking dark brown epoxy finish with hand-wrapped black and metallic gold-and-blue thread trim wraps, each gaff has a handsome and extremely functional black nylon seine cord-wrapped handle with hand-finished Turk's heads on each end of the wrapped grips. Seine cord and Turk's heads are finished with epoxy for durability and extra tackiness when gripped with wet or slimy hands. A large rubber "mushroom-style" butt cap finishes the butt-end of each handle.
