Skalka barbless hooks are arguably some of the best fly fishing hooks in the world. Using a super-sharp needle point,
the hook penetrates quickly on the set. Since there's no barb or micro-barb, the hook is easily removed, causing less
damage and trauma to the fish.
Dry fly hooks (D1 and D2) use a fine wire - which is ideal for the float. Streamers (S) use the best heavy wire I've seen
yet on a hook. Of course the Czech Nymph and Pupa hooks are what made Skalka famous. Expensive - yes, but
worth every penny.
