About the 316
I love using this hook for a number of patterns. Especially good for caddis, emergers, and Czech nymphs.
This is a standard length hook with a 2X gape. It has a straight eye and is formed from a medium weight wire. It is available in sizes #6 to #22.
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.
