This is the standard iron salmon hook. It has all the proportions and features that have been time-tested and proven. This hook is especially utilized in times of low water when fish are easily spooked. At such times, fly patterns are tied smaller than normal so they won't spook the fish.
The hooks are made of the finest high-carbon steel, which is hardened and tempered to an exacting formula that makes for a long point life and a very strong hook. Daiichi hooks use a 12-degree constant taper ground needle point. This eliminates irregularities in shape, assuring no weak spots, and gives amazing speed of penetration.
