This hook has an array of uses from light work Stillwater and reservoir fishing to the perfect all round hook for dries and lightweight nymphs on the river.
Unlike our other hooks in the range this hooks has a “slightly” upturned point which we prefer specifically for out river flies. The “turned in” point is not exaggerated and as such will not be defect positive hook ups (unlike some upturned point hooks out there!)
These hooks are manufactured from the highest grade steel, made in Japan. They have flawless bronze finish, have been through a stringent tempering process and perfect smooth eye formation.
This is the ultimate hook wet flies, dries, river nymphs like perditions and more.
Having been tested extensively for nearly two years we found a straight point to have a far superior hook up and hold rate for fishing UK style methods and applications. There are instances when curved point hooks sometimes do have a better hold however these are in very specific instances.
For any method that involves any movement of flies this is undoubtedly the best shape of hook.
