About the 317
My personal preference for this hook has been for klinkhammer, emergers, and general nymphs where I want an more natural bend.
This is a standard length hook with a 1X gape. It has a straight eye and is formed from a medium weight wire. It is available in sizes #10 to #24.
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.
