DAIICHI 1220 D.M. DRY FLY HOOK
Darrel Martin describes the paradigm or ultimate design for a dry fly hook in his book. Daiichi has translated MartinÌ_Ì_åÈs theory into the ultimate dry fly hook. It has the features modern tiers look for; wide gape, mini-barb, etc. Plus the upturned tapered shank presents mayfly wings in a very natural angled position.
The hooks are made of the finest high-carbon steel, which is hardened and tempered to an exacting formula that makes for a long point life and a very strong hook. Daiichi hooks use a 12-degree constant taper ground needle point eliminating irregularities in shape, assuring no weak spots, & gives amazing speed of penetration.
