DAIICHI 1110 - Wide Gape Dry Fly Hook Straight Eye

Regular price $9.29 Sale

This hook was designed by Jim Lepage and the Orvis Co. and patented as the "Big Eye" hook, in 1990. This hook features an oversized eye to ease the threading of tippet material and has the dimensions of a modern dry fly hook, including a slightly wider gape than a Mustad 94840 standard dry fly hook.

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, & gives amazing speed of penetration.
