Tiemco™ 2499 SP-BL Hooks
Secret Ingredient to a Great Fly
Excellent, excellent hook. Proportions work well for a variety of caddis and shrimp bodies.
Hook 'sizes' big - size 16 is virtually identical in dimensions to a 2487 in size 14.
Super wide gape results in more hook-ups. Despite the prejudice against barbless hooks, and "the big ones will just wiggle right off," fear not, anglers: these things set far better and more securely than many scud hooks - just like the wide gaps in octopus and circle hooks used for bait fishing. And if you accidentally hook yourself or your shirt, they slide right back out and you can get back to fishing!
Yes, they cost a little more, but you definitely get more than you paid for!
