Probably the best barbless wet fly hook available, solely designed for the purpose of Stillwater fly fishing and specifically UK methods. Featuring an all important straight point for a superior hook up rate to curved points.
These hooks are manufactured from the highest grade steel, made in Japan. They have flawless bronze finish, have been through a stringent tempering proxess and perfect smooth eye formation.
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.
*size 10 conforms exactly to international hook gauge
