This is the traditional wet fly hook. Wet flies are time-honored, successful, subsurface patterns. These hooks feature a more gradual curve of the wire in the transition from the straight shank to the bottom of the bend. This shape is associated with an early English hook-maker named Sproat and today is still referred to as a sproat bend. Dedicated fly tiers consider this as the proper bend to give wet flies their aesthetic beauty.

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. This eliminates irregularities in shape, assuring no weak spots, and gives amazing speed of penetration.
