3X-short hooks have been very popular with fishers that used salmon eggs as bait and by flyfishers who use artificial eggs as patterns for steelhead trout or salmon. Fly tiers prefer this type of hook for spider and ant patterns which are successful for trout in situations when there is no apparent significant hatch of aquatic insects occurring, such as late summer.
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.
