Maybe you didn’t know, but Gamakatsu’s high quality global reputation actually started with the manufacturing of fly hooks. The Japanese leading hook manufacturing company has been working on some interesting additions to its fly hook range; the weighted C12 and the Jig Nymph.
Gamakatsu’s Weighted C12
This is the weighted version of the popular C12 hooks which are normally used for tying nymphs such as scuds and pupas. The weight on the hook eye allows the fly to be fished deeper, the upside-down hook position prevents the hook getting caught on the bottom. Available in sizes 10 to 16 in NS Black colour. 10 pcs per pack.
How to tie on:
– Pass the line through the front to the back of the hook eye.
– Make a three- or four-turn long knot at the end of the line.
– Get ready for action!
JIG NYMPH (BL)
Unhooking made easy thanks to the vertical eye. Simply take the fly between thumb and index finger and remove the hook from the fish’s mouth whilst leaving the fish in the water.
