A hook deigned specifically for the perfect bend back fly.
The Umpqua XS435 Bendback hooks is deigned for one thing, the perfect bendback fly. With the shape and design of this hook having a in line shank and hook point allows for the perfect penetration and energy transfer to get the hook set proper without losing the energy transfer. This hook includes a micro barb for slimmer profile for better hook penetration, forged hi-carbon steel and the new V-Lock design.
The V-Lock bend is made to keep the hook situated right in the corner of the mount and all the pulling forced in the “knuckle” of the hook without slipping out.
