Daiichi 1730 - Stonefly Nymph Hook

  • Sale
  • Regular price $7.00

This hook was specifically designed to enhance the natural appearance of stonefly nymph fly patterns. In older fly tying recipes, tiers were often instructed to bend the hook shank of a typical 3X or 4X-long hook down, that way the final product exhibits a curved or bent body more closely resembling the actual nymphs which bend between the thorax and abdomen when they free swim. Manually bending a finished hook always compromises the metal and is not recommended. These hooks come pre-shaped for perfect looking imitations.

Bronze, round bend, down-eye, bent down shank, 1X-heavy wire, 3X-long shank, forged

Uses: Stonefly Nymphs, Crab Patterns

Sizes: 4 - 14
