kamasan b175 One of the most classical and beautiful streamer hooks on the market today. It is a normal shank length down eye hook with a bend that is a bit like a Limerick bend. All hook are made to en exquisite quality. They are uniform, well made and very sharp. The hook is not stainless, but will withstand salt water to some extend, although not enough to be left wet from salt water in a flybox.
The B170 is a standard wire hook while the B175 is heavier. I personally prefer the heavy hook, but form standard wet flies in fresh water you will be fine with B170.
Many of the typical sea trout flies can be tied on this hook. The heavier version will insure that the fly penetrates the surface and sinks slowly - even without the aide of further weight.
