Daiichi is based in New York and is a long time favorite with some of the US's finest fly tyers. Daiichi hooks are considered by many to be the best made hooks on the market of the highest qualilty. All of Daiichi hooks are made of high carbon steel and have chemically sharpened points to create one of the sharpest hooks ever offered for sale. With Daiichi you get no more rusty or dull points and no more irregular eyes!
For my overseas friends and customers, Daiichi is the US equivalent to Kamasan. For many overseas tyers, you are now able to buy many of those popular UK hooks here in the States with the cheaper exchange rate. ( if you are in the UK our money is at about a 40% discount rate!!!)
Daiichi Fly hooks are the finest in the world. Here's why:
- These 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. This eliminates irregularities in shape, assuring no weak spots, & gives amazing speed of penetration.
- Daiichi Hooks are chemically sharpened hooks in a special bath that deburs their points.
- Daiichi hooks come in multiple finishes that are all evenly and smoothly applied.
- Each hook is precision tooled "true" to the exact design of the eye, bend, gape & barb.
- Our barbs are an advanced "low profile" design that results in minimal weakness and less broken hooks and lost fish.
- Daiichi offers a very wide variety of hook patterns for almost every fly tyers needs.
