Hooks

AquaTalon Swing Hooks

 

We designed our AquaTalon hooks after many years of on-the-water experience. An obvious need emerged for an ultra precise, high performance hook that is as fish-friendly as possible.

 

Aqua Flies and Jerry French have collaborated to produce the very best swing hook on the market. AquaTalon Swing Hooks are designed for optimal fish hooking and landing. Currently available in sizes 1, 2, 4 and 6. Packaged in 25 and 100 packs.

 

• Continuous, round shape for superior strength

• Slight drop point for an ideal hook-up location

• Fine wire size for maximum penetration

• 20° turned up eye for a perfect girth hitch to trailing loop

• Offset point

• Micro barb for those that need one

• Made in Japan

 

The ultimate trailer hook

 

Shanks

Aqua Flies shanks are designed with the fly tier in mind. All of our shanks have a gun metal finish and the ends have been polished to ensure the trailing loop will not be compromised while fishing. Packaged in clear ziplock bags with an easy to read header card. 25 shanks per pack.


Return Eye Shanks

Our Return Eye Shank has a clean tapered return with no sharp edges. Ideal for any pattern using dumbbell eyes. The return portion of the shank makes a perfect platform to secure eyes and other materials.

 

Available sizes: 27mm, 43mm, 51mm


Round Eye Shanks

Our Round Eye Shank is great for adding a cone or a bead to the fly.

 

Available sizes: 26mm, 33mm, 51mm

 

Eyes

Intruder Eyes

 

Aqua Flies is now offering the same dumbbell eyes we use on our Intruders. We are constantly asked where fly tiers can purchase the fluorescent eyes used for our Intruders and Mini-Intruders. Now these brass dumbbell eyes are available from Aqua Flies in packages of 20 eyes per pack.

 

These Intruder Eyes are colored with a durable powder coating in five eye popping colors:  Black, Blood Red, Blue, King Fisher Blue, Purple, Fluorescent Pink, Fluorescent Orange, Fluorescent Salmon Pink, Fluorescent Flame and Fluorescent Chartreuse. Available in three sizes: 1/8" (3.2mm), 5/32" (4mm) and 3/16" (4.8mm).
