Daiichi 1100 Hooks Wide Gap Dry Fly Hook Down Eye
In 1990 Jim Lepage and the Orvis Co. designed and patented the original "Big Eye" hook. The original big eye was a straight eyed dry fly hook with an oversized eye (Daiichi 1110) to ease the threading of tippets. Style #1100 was introduced in 1994 and is the same basic design as to 1110 except it is the down-eyed version, which is more popular for dry flies
The hooks are made of the finest high-carbon steel, which is hardened and tempered to an exacting formula that makes for a long point life and a very strong hook. Daiichi hooks use a 12-degree constant taper ground needle point eliminating irregularities in shape, assuring no weak spots, & gives an amazing speed of penetration.
