Definition of pirk in English:
A metal weight fitted with a hook, used as a lure for sea fishing.
- Even when baiting a treble or single hook on a pirk, it's worth adding a luminous muppet to add further movement at hook level.
- Today much is made in the way of lures to attract fish and these include pirks for deep-sea fishing, flies for trout, salmon and grayling, plugs and spinners for pike, salmon, bass, cod and flounders.
- If you tip the pirk with a side of mackerel or a strip of squid think about removing the treble hook and fitting a large single hook.
