This heavy wire version of style 1130 was introduced in 1999 for those fly fishermen who need tougher hooks for heavy powerful fish, like steelhead, and for those who want heavier wire to accelerate the sinking speed of their subsurface flies.
This particular style became popularly known as a "Scud Hook" because of its shape, which is similar to the curve of freshwater shrimp (scud). Flies tied on hooks with bent shanks or continuous bends have a more natural shape or look more lifelike according to many fishers.
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 eliminating irregularities in shape, assuring no weak spots, and gives amazing speed of penetration.

Very knowledgeable and extremely helpful, super friendly and great variety of product.
They've got anything you could need. It's a huge selection, which is surprising for a small town shop. They're amazing people and Collin can answer any questions you have. His knowledge is impressive.
I recently spent a weekend with a close group of friends fly fishing along with Colin and team - incredible preparation & professionalism, quality camp equipment and fishing gear and just a first class operation overall. I would and highly recommend RMFS to any and all fishing skill levels interested in enjoying themselves on the water. It was a really positive experience for our group.
Congrats to Colin and Tammy on the move to their new location in downtown Olds! The prices are fair, they have a great selection and the shipping is lighting fast. Best sticker offerings I have seen south of Red Deer as a kicker.
I had a fabulous lesson with Jordan from Rocky Mountain Fly Shop. We went out on the water and he tailored the lesson to my experience and skill level. We touched on casting, fly selection and an introduction to reading water. It was all hands on and I walked away with the confidence to try new things this summer. It was a perfect morning and I'll definitely do it again.
