This “improved” O’Shaughnessy hook features a short shank and a curved “beak” point (see 2451) and it is offset (reversed). The short shank equates to less leverage as a large fish bites down on the hook shank. The offset is a popular technique used to increase hook-ups and many saltwater anglers prefer the curved point claiming better hook-ups. O’Shaughnessy bend, beak point, 2X-short shank, straight-eye, forged, reversed. Uses: Saltwater, Salmon and Steelhead Flies. #1 is an 18 pack; 1/0 is a 15 pack, 2/0 is a 10 pack. 4/0 is an 8 pack.
