Circle hooks

forgive me if this  has been covered

 

is the inline vs offset in the regs referring to the line tie / eyes?

 

or the point of the hook being inline with the shank?

eg a circle vs more of a spiral if you set them flat on a table

 

i thought inline circle requirements were about the hook point and the line tie / eye was up to the user?

 

thanks

The hook eye has nothing to do with the meaning of offset. It’s the hook shank, the eye is for Snelling. 

If you look above, that was someone else's question, not mine.. the diagram is for reference purposes, to help that individual identify an inline circle hook vs an offset circle

Yes your so right, however some people on here don’t read the entire post or conversation. All I’m trying to do is help when forced to use a hook people aren’t accustomed too. Your diagram did not show this.
