Thanks to its uncompromising quality, reliability and innovation, for the past 20 years Tiemco has become the undisputed fly hooks manufacturing leader and favorite amongst fly tyers around the world.
Tiemco introduced an innovative chemical-sharpening process which makes Tiemco hooks one of the strongest weapons in fly fisherman's arsenal. The sharpness of the hooks makes it nearly impossible to unhook the fish once it has been hooked on and reeling in has begun. The fly hook is one of the most important and yet often simultaneously one of the most overlooked components in the fly fishing gear. The reason is that fly tyers often tend to focus more on having quality fly tying materials, equipment and vices but when it comes to having sharp and quality fly hooks to use, the hooks quantity often out weights the quality.
Fly tyers pay great attention to detail when it comes to the craftsmanship of the fly - what threads and dubbling to use, it's silhouette and nuances - all undoubtedly very important factors when creating an effective fly, however if the hook itself is not sharp enough, has the wrong shape or rusts easily, it could effectively rendered a great fly craftsmanship useless if a trophy fish unhooks due to poor quality of the hook. However with the ever increasing fishing "pressure" exerted on the rivers and lakes everywhere, missing a trophy fish is not a luxury we can (or want to) afford every day - this can be averted by using Tiemco hooks.
Tiemco 100 hooks are the most versatile and also copied fly hooks in the world. The hook has longer then usual shank, a micro barb and it's made of fine thin wire with the eye being twisted a bit downwards. They are incredibly light and suitable for all dry flies and dry fly patterns. They come in sizes 10 through 20 and are also offered as a barbless version (Tiemco 100BL).
Tiemco 921 is a specialized hook for dry flies. It has a shorter shank which makes it lighter then Tiemco 100 and perfectly suited for making parachute flies, thorax flies, mayfly emergers and CDC flies. It comes in sizes 8 thought 18.
Tiemco 2487 hooks have micro barb, made with slightly ticker wire specially designed for different types of nymphs with more curved bodies, Czech nymphs. Tiemco 2487 is also especially effective for shrimp, caddis pupae and other emerger imitations. They come in sizes 10 though 20 and are also offered as a barbless version (Tiemco 2487BL).
Tiemco 3769 is a specialized hook for nymphs with the Tiemco characteristic shape made of slightly ticker wire making it incredibly strong. It comes in sizes 8 through 18.
Tiemco 108SP BL
Tiemco 108SP BL is a barbless model hooks with likely the most unique point from any fly hook currently available on the market. The point called "super point" is patented by the Japanese company and it's characterized by having the point sharpened from three different sides to provide very good holding force without a barb. The hooks come in sizes 12 through 18.
Tiemco 811S is designed for saltwater fly fishing but it has also become very popular amongst pike fly fishermen. The hooks is very strong but at the same time light as it's made from very light steel. It's has the sharpest point we've ever seen by any large hook. It comes in sizes 1/0, 2/0 and 3/0
Tiemco has also successfully started manufacturing other products. Tiemco's leaders, tippets, floatants and fly fishing accessories are something you have to try to see how the No. 1 fly hooks manufacturer approaches new ventures. Tiemcos leaders and tippets are extremely strong and have precise diameter. Tiemco's floatants are some of the best in the world.
We can say that each Tiemco product is marked by the specifics of the Japanese culture as a whole and their understanding about life. Every little detail is crafted to perfection and they never make compromises when it comes to quality. This is what makes Tiemco an excellent (we think the best!) choice when it comes to strong, sharp and reliable hooks.
