Short shank is perfect for egg and hi-tie patterns
The Gamakatsu C14S is a short shank hook designed with Glo Bugs and Egg patterns in mind. We also like tying small hi-tie style baitfish on them. They work perfect for flies like the Polar Fiber Minnow where everything is tied on top of the shank. You can create small flies that still have a solid hook gap. They’re super sticky and need no sharpening out of the pack.
