The AquaTalon Comet hook has been kept secret by my steelhead brothers in Northern California for many years. This hook has been used for both steelhead and salmon in estuaries and farther up rivers. The 3800 is the perfect hook for tying comets, bosses or steelhead nymphs. The forged heavy wire will withstand even the largest chinook salmon. The hook is 1x short with a wide gap. The beak point helps hold the hook in place while fighting a fish with a crushed barb.
