DAIICHI 1330 - Short Shank Dry Fly Hook - Up Eye

Regular price $6.99 Sale

Some fly fishers prefer up-eye hooks for some of their patterns and claim higher success rates for hookups. Otherwise, this hook is identical to the 1310 Short-Shank Dry Fly Hook.

A short shank hook allows you to tie a standard length pattern on a short shank hook. By selecting one size larger than normal - a size 12 Adams fits on a size 10 short shank. This can be beneficial as 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.

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.
