This is an extremely effective hook for natural bend dries, hoppers, and stimulators. Equally at home as a long nymph hook.
The 523 is a 3XL version of the 516. To compensate for the additional leverage generated from the extended length I increased the wire diameter by one size, e.g. 523 #10 and 516 #8 have the same wire diameter.
I love using this hook for a number of patterns. Especially good for caddis, emergers, and Czech nymphs.This is a standard length hook with a 2X gape. It has a straight eye and is formed from a medium weight wire. Available in sizes #6 to #22.
