Fantastic hook for caddis, emergers, pupa, Czech nymphs, and general purpose nymphs. This is a standard length hook with a 2X gape. It has a straight eye and is formed from a medium weight wire. Fly tyers love using this hook for a number of patterns. As with all Firehole Sticks, this hook is made from high strength carbon steel, which is properly hardened and tempered. The hook is chemically sharpened and finished with a black nickel coating.
