This series is specifically designed for big fish in situations where a small hook is necessary. Available in sizes 1/0, 2/0, and 3/0, the design allows angler to present a smaller profile fly, but still have the strength needed to hang on to a very large angry Tarpon. The SC17 features a short, stout shank with an eye turned up ever so slightly to put the direction of pull in line with its' sticky sharp beak point. The SC17 also has a very wide gap to help hold the fish once the battle begins. It makes a good tube fly trailer as well. The finish is a corrosion resistant NS Black.
