Bob Johns, a noted fly tier and hook designer created this “Bartlett” style hook in the 1970’s. He preferred this straight eye version to the more popular “up-eye” (see 2161) for his personal flies. This hook can be used to create beautiful curved nymphs for steelhead.
Curved shank, tapered-loop eye, forged. Uses: Salmon/Steelhead Flies and Nymphs
