Kamasan B440 Hooks
Kamasan B440 offers a series of chemically sharpened needle point high carbon hooks. Each pattern has been specifically designed for the fly-fishing market. This exceptional point in combination with a small superbly proportioned barb all adds up to the next step forward in fishing technology.
Kamasan hooks are regarded by many fly tyers as the best available. Why? Because each Kamasan hook is made from high carbon steel and chemically etched to create the sharp point.
The Kamasan hooks are then treated to a double bronze finish. This prevents the hook from rusting, even if it is stored wet. Kamasan hooks are made in Japan and are extremely strong. They are made in a variety of shapes that are perfect for the fly tyer.
We stock the entire Kamasan hook range. Most Kamasan hook choices are available in 25, 100 (most Popular), or 1000 (Best Value) hook packs. Including the Kamasan B175 Sproat (ideal to tie wet flies and nymphs), and the Kamasan B100 Grub (for tying shrimps and grubs) which are top two selling Kamasan hook types.
With literally hundreds of different hook patterns available to the fly tyer the task of choosing the right one would seem a veritable minefield, especially for the beginner. The good news is that all is not lost! With a few simple pointers and a little thought it is easy to pick your way through this hazard without even damaging a fingernail.
First, there are many good brands out there! Kamasan, however, is where we lay our loyalty. Given that hooks are relatively inexpensive I would advise any fly tyer, beginner or experienced, to buy the very best that they can afford. As brands come and go, Kamasan remain the most consistent and popular choice of the experienced fly tyer.
