Hook of the Month: Fulling Mill Czech Nymph Hook

Published: 8th April 2024 | Author: Fulling Mill

Our hook of the month for April is our barbless Czech Nymph Hook. This hook is incredibly versatile and can be used for a wide range of nymphs and dries to achieve a curved body effect. Scuds and caddis are obvious examples here, but it’s also excellent for tying realistic mayflies as well. But don’t stop there! This is also a great hook for tying emergers and dry flies. Due to its curved shape, it allows you to tie patterns that sit deeper in the film. This makes it ideal for any pattern that represents an emerging, cripple or stuck insect. On picky fish or tricky days on the water, these patterns on this hook can make all the difference.

Regular and Heavy Wire

Our Czech Nymph hook is available in two wire types: standard, and heavy. The heavy version has a 20% heavier wire gauge than the standard which allows you to fish it with heavier tippet. This is ideal for when you’re targeting big fish and/or fishing in powerful water. Both sizes are available in sizes 10-20.

Technical Details

Both the heavy and regular versions of our Czech nymph hook come in a black nickel finish. Outside of the US we offer a light wire version in bronze as well. The hook has a continuous bend, which is ideal for both fly profile and fish holding purposes. Additionally, it features a claw point. This is where the hook point curves upwards slightly (towards the shank). This greatly aids in positive hook sets as well as fish retention. All styles of this hook are forged and tempered, which prevents points from going dull and the hook from failing.

Below we highlight patterns in our range that showcase this hook.
