Daiichi hooks #1153 - Red heavy wide gape hook
This hook design is similar to hooks used in England and Europe as bait hooks for carp. In fly-fishing, it works great for nymphs, larvae, scuds, shrimp, or bead-head flies. The heavier than standard wire is preferred by some to give flies more weight and more strength.
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.
