Catch and release is the mantra, and rightly so, but gaffs remain a necessity. When darts or harpoons are not allowed, the Accurate FGM-16 Tournament fly gaff with 6-foot handle and 5/8-inch rope should secure any harvest. All Accurate gaffs are machined, then welded and bent. Once the process is complete, a heat treatment hardens the hook. The slot of the fly gaff handle, impregnated with Teflon, is built to resist corrosion. The Magnum Milled hook is made from 1-inch bar stock for strength, then machined to reduce weight. Retail price: $792. Accurate Fishing Products, (888) ACCU-372; www.accuratefishing.com.
