Gamakatsu SL12S 1X Short Big Game Blue Water Hooks
Free Shipping $45+
The SL12-S has been one of Gamakatsu’s most popular hooks for tying tarpon, billfish and other big game flies. The new 1xShort version broadens the appeal by increasing the wire size for additional strength and shortening the shank length to accommodate smaller patterns that have become the rage in recent years. The SL12-S features a straight eye and is made from 1x heavy Gamakatsu wire that’s ideal for use with most trophy-class, saltwater species. Make no mistake about it, this is a multi-use, multi-species fly hook that will surely find its way into hundreds of fisheries and millions of fly boxes.
Guide recommendations - The 4/0 and 3/0 are outstanding for Billfish and saltwater patterns that don't need tons of shank space. The 2/0 and 1/0 are some of the best Permit and Tarpon hooks out there, and the #2s-#6s are great for bitesized bonefish flies.
