This is the main hook I use for my smaller EP Deceiver Flies. It is one tough hook up to the challenges of a tarpon class fish. It is an extremely sharp hook with a triple micro barb, heavy wire gauge, a black anodized finish, and an offset shank (which I straighten for my EP Fiber flies).This hook is VERY HARD TO FIND ANYWHERE! It is often used as a live bait hook for Kingfish here, and in Europe for carp fishing. These hooks will come bulk packed (25 count) in a small zipper bag. Umpqua started selling these hooks, called the “triple threat” for $19.80/25.
