The 516 is a heavy jig style hook with a 60 degree bend at the eye. I often omit a bead and tie emerger patterns on this hook.
This is a standard length hook with a 1X gape. It has a down eye and is formed from a heavy weight wire. It will initially be available in sizes #8 to #20 with the potential of additional sizes in the future.
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.
