Assuming you have the cross sections shape and scale for various points along the hook, you would use the Lofter Protrusion command to complete the basic shape. First you wll have to construct the sketchs og the section at the appropriate location along the hook. Then use the Loft command to fit a solid between the sections. the tip of the hook and the eyelet end will need to me modeled similarly building off the main lofted model.
