The hooks on the Sabikis (and all other pre-tied feathers) all seem to be quite a heavy gauge which means a large hole and less likely to penetrate bone.  The Kammassan B541 are a very light weight, thin, wide gape and very sharp hook.  As they are spade ends I think it will be quite easy to knock up some home made sabikis using them.  I will knock some up on Saturday and give them a go.  Will post pictures.

Size 6 does the trick. If you are trying to match the hatch, google crab larvae. Don't go to light because if you hit mackerel you will be ripped up.

Wife doesn't like herring (too bony) but likes sardines (trendy) so I have told her these are large sardines. Compared to the days-old herring in the fish market these are very firm to the touch. Lovely.


The rest were pickled and I can report, home pickling works and if you like pickled herring, they are very good. I have put the recipe here:
