Daiichi Salmon Egg Hooks
The Daiichi Salmon Egg Hook was developed for fishing with bait, but is now also being used for artificial bait. Known as an egg hook, this style is generally used by trout and anglers using natural salmon eggs as bait. Today's fly tiers create artificial egg patterns to simulate salmon eggs and many prefer this hook style because the up-eye does not close off the hook gape and the angle of pull enhances hook-ups.
With their exceptionally high-carbon steel construction, Daiichi hooks exhibit correct shapeness, extreme hardness and razor-sharp points. The lengthy tempering process each hook undergoes gives them just the right amount of flex, so they hold fast when under heavy pressure. And for maximum effectiveness, the barbs on Daiichi hooks only cut into 40% of the hook's wire diameter. This low profile barb design offers quick penetration.
