History of Litewire Hooks:  Many years ago before the original owner, Curtis Hobbs, created Litewire Hooks, he fished Lake Eufaula in Alabama and fished a ledge down from Rood Creek.  Every time he got hung, he would lose the gold hook, jig, and lead.  He started using a lighter and tempered the bend in the gold hooks, bend one time, and then often the hook would bend, and he would not lose everything.  Once Curtis started pouring Litewire Hooks, everything changed!  He would still get hung, but many times the hook would bend, and he would get the hook, jig and lead back…and not have to tie on another hook.

Curtis poured/painted/baked Litewire hooks for 25+ years, and at the end of 2023, he decided it was time to retire.  His good friends, Derek Padgett and Russell Odom, accepted the offer to continue production and support his existing customers and any new ones.  Curtis did a knowledge transfer to ensure they would continue the same quality he has maintained over the years.  As he ramped down in inventory and production, Derek and Russell ramped up with molds, hooks, lead, etc.  They continue to consult with Curtis when needed.  Just as Curtis did, Derek and Russell pour, paint and bake themselves.  They paint eyes on the heads and bake after painting them.  They also clean out the eyes where you tie on the line, as well as try not to paint the barb to make the jig stay on better.
