What started out as a short shank dry has become so much more! I use this hook for everything! Extended bodies, hoppers, emergers, nymphs, you name it. The short shank, deep bend and extra wide gape make it truly multipurpose. I’ve seen some folks use it as a tube fly hook and a carp hook.
This is a 2X short length hook with a 3X gape. It has a straight eye and is formed from a medium weight wire. It is available in sizes #8 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.
