This short-shanked hook was designed for fly fishing for steelhead. It has heavy wire for sinking the fly and for holding large, powerful steelhead trout. It can be used for a variety of popular steelhead fly patterns, such as eggs, glo-bugs, nymphs, comets, and other wet flies.
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.
