A specialty dry fly hook that is used when you want a shorter shank than the standard 100. This hook can also be used for nymphs, even though we recommend it mainly for dries. Mercer's Micro Mayfly; one of the most popular mayfly nymphs ever created, is tied on the 921. Some of the more common flies that are tied on this hook are: * Mercer's Micro May * Quigley's Midget Caddis * Tommy's Tomcat
1X fine, 2X short, down eye, forged bronze, wide gape
Excellent hook, I like the wide gap for hooking quality

Favorite dry fly hook...… Shorter shank and with a little wider gap than your standard #100.

Great Hooks - great value!
I have been using Fly shop hooks for years. They perform as well as hooks costing much more.
I particularly like the 2X short dry fly hooks for small flies since they allow a wider gap for consistent secure hook ups.
