I really like these Gamakatsu R18 hooks. I’ve used them for a while now and they are among my favorites. They’re a 2X heavy wire so they provide a nice bit of mass to sink you kebari or wet fly below the surface – but not make it sink like a stone.
They are of course – super sharp and barbless for great hook ups.
Best of all the unique retainer bend helps keep those fish on after they’re hooked. Don’t ask me to explain the physics of it – but the retainer bend works!
