Daiichi 1222 Darrel Martin's Dry Fly Hook

Daiichi 1222 Darrel Martin's Dry Fly Hook

Daiichi



The Daiichi 1222 hook is the ultimate dry fly hook. Inspired by Darrel Martin's theory of the best dry fly hook, this hook features what modern tiers look for; wide gape, mini-barb, with an upturned tapered shank which presents mayfly wings in a very natural angled position. The 1222 hook features Daiichi’s Crystal Finish which is a white, silvery plate. A fish looking up at a fly with a “Crystal Finish” hook will find that hook almost invisible, especially with the sky in the background.
