The 1260 hook was designed in 1995 by the Orvis Company and Angler Sport Group as a hook to use specifically with metal beads to make “bead head” nymphs. The shape of the bend and standard wire facilitates the use of beads with a smaller center hole. The curved shank gives flies a more aesthetically pleasing and natural look. They’re also great for hoppers and terrestrials.
Description: Bronze round bend, straight-eye, curved shank. Uses: Bead Head Nymphs, Hoppers, Terres- trials. Easy to use with beads of all types.
