Tiemco introduced continuous bend hooks into the American fly tying market in the 1980’s. This particular style is similar to the TMC 2487, which quickly became popularly known as a “Scud Hook” because of its shape, which is similar to the curve of freshwater shrimp (scud). Flies tied on hooks with bent shanks or continuous bends have a more natural shape or look more lifelike according to many fishers.
Continuous bend, down-eye, 1X-fine wire, 1X-short shank, forged, reversed. Uses: Scud, Shrimp, Grubs, Pupae, San Juan Worms, Nymphs
