In the mid-1980s, Daiichi introduced this swimming nymph hook to form the foundation for swimming mayfly nymph artificials, and for flies imitating leeches or worms. The gentle S curve helps give a life-like appearance to these creations.
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.
3X-long curved shank
