These salmon/steelhead hooks with turned-up eyes are heavy-wire forged. The use of recent advances in hook technology makes MFC Hooks the fly-tyer's and fly fisherman's most dependable hook. MFC Hooks are carefully manufactured from H80C high-carbon steel wire. The chemically sharpened needle point offers the best possible penetration. After chemical sharpening, these hooks are coated with an anti-corrosive finish to prevent rusting. The Montana Fly Company has been using these hooks since the founding of the company and have had nothing but perfect success.
