The wait is over and it's finally here! We are obsessed with Euro Nymphing and we have grown quite fond of high-sticking streamers through our favorite runs to bring out the biggest trout, but there was always a problem- Standard streamer hooks didn't have a big enough gap to accommodate these stubby, heavy flies and if they did, they were too long. Then we tried using hooks like the Gamakatsu B10-S, but the shank length was almost always too short(see the picture of our ES1 sz. 4 next to a B10-S sz. 4). By taking the best of these two hooks, we have produced our new Es1! The slightly longer shank and the wide, pig-sticker gap are combined to create the perfect hook for small inverted "Euro Streamers" like our Euro Sculpin and mini articulated patterns as well. Available in sizes 2 and 4.
