Hook anatomy and hook types - Kamasan 800 and 820 hooks

Hooks  B175  34011  Holden  840B  800/820  Emerger  TMC700  Selecting  Broken
By Martin Joergensen

Sometimes I want to tie some really huge flies - huge by my standards at least. Huge would typically be sizes 4 and 2. I used to use the Mustad 34011 in these sizes, but I'm not so pleased with this hook as I used to be.

After that I was looking for a straight eye, long shank hook that would not be too heavy, and Torben at my local tackle shop pointed me to the Kamasan Lure/Nymph/Muddler hook numbered B820. This is not called a long shank hook, but is indeed quite long. It's a very plain straight eye hook and together with its down eye counterpart Trout/Classic Lure extra long B800 forms a very good base for my larger streamer, zonker and muddler patterns.

I use it for the Nutria and color band muddlers, the Full Metal Jacket Nutria Muddler, The Fair Fly and many others.

We're not a shop. We do not sell hooks, so we cannot help you. You need to inquire by a dealer or online store.
