Daiichi 1100 Wide Gape Dry Fly Hook with Oversized Down Eye

Daiichi 1100 Wide Gape Dry Fly Hook



In 1990, Jim Lepage and the Orvis Co. designed and patented the original “Big Eye” hook. The original big eye was a straight eyed dry fly hook with an oversized eye (Daiichi 1110) to facilitate easy threading of tippets. Style 1100 was introduced in 1994. It's the same basic design as the 1110 except it features a more popular down-eye for dry flies.

Wide Gap Dry Fly Hook

I have been using Daiichi Hooks for a number of years and the wide gap dry fly hooks are some of my favorites, the wider gap allows for solid hook sets. Since I started using these hooks, I have only lost a handful of fish and the majority of them cut 7x tippet on rocks.

Best Dry Fly Hook

I have used many dry fly hooks and this is by far the best. I love Daiichi hooks and always will but this is a great hook for dry flies and I would recommend it. Sharpest hook point and quality materials make this a standout.
