The Story

Many fly tiers prefer down-eye hooks for their looks, particularly on classic patterns. Down-eye style makes tying parachute patterns easier. They have the same great point, Perfect bend, and whisker barb as our original Big Eye hooks.

Imported.

Sizes: 16-24.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great hook for older eyes i have been tying on these hooks for some time now - great concept and much easier to tie on to tippets stream side added benefit is because eye is a bit larger you are less likely to crowd eye when tying the fly fishes no differently great product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big eye is a life saver for not so good eyes I happened to pick up a bag of the size 20's and loved them. So I got brave and ordered some 22's and 24's. Normally I'd not be able to thread that size of a hook, but these look like I'll be able to, now I just have to go fishing and try to keep a big fish on a size 24 hook:)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy on the eyes These hooks are much easier to use for those of us who are a bit older with eyesight that might not be as sharp as it once was.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Big Eye Tying on big eye flies makes all the difference when changing flies in the middle of a river. Makes quick work on these tiny flies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Help for old eyes There may not be much I can do about 70 year old knees but there is something I can do about 70 year old eyes. These are great quality hooks and in size 16 and 18 they are just a bit easier to thread on a tippet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big eye hooks for small hooks I prefer these hooks for size22 flies. They are really sharp, and the big eye hook allows one to finish off the head better than a standard hook and this really matters on #22 hooks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharp!! Great quality hook for small dry and emerger patterns! Much easier to thread big eye for us ‘presbyopic fly flingers!’
