The Daiichi 1310 is a short shank hook tHAT if you tie a standard length pattern on a short shank hook, you select one size larger than normal – a size 14 Adams fits on a size 12 “short shank”.  This does two things that may be beneficial.  First it gives you one size heavier wire, therefore increased strength. It also gives a wider gape for increased hooking effectiveness.  Of course, these hooks are also used for short dry flies, spiders, beetles, ants, etc.
