SHORT SHANK:

Short shank hooks are ideal for fishing with larvae (wax moth, caddisfly, maggot,...). The wide shank holds these often thick baits perfectly.

LONG SHANK:

Long shank hooks are better for fishing with worms (earthworms, trout worms mud worms,...). The long shank sometimes has barbs which hold the worms along its length and stops it sliding during casting and drifting. 

SPRINGED TROUT HOOK:

This hook is ideal for fishing with paste. The spring on the hook holds the paste firmly during powerful casts.
