Curved Shank Nymph Hook #1273
The york bend was developed by Daiichi to simulate a more natural looking curved hook. Many tyers feel that these curved hooks create a more natural representation of the flies they tie. This 3X-long model is perfect for bead head nymphs, hoppers, and other dry flies but just a reminder - this is a standard wire hook only.
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 eliminateing irregularities in shape, assuring no weak spots, and gives amazing speed of penetration.
