The TMC 403 BLJ is a modern jig hook that is just perfect, if you want to present your nymph near the river bottom. The eye is bend 60 degrees so that your fly rides 'upside-down' in combination with slotted tungsten beads. As a result, your nymph gets stucked much less. The black hook has a normal shank made from medium wire, a wide gap and a super fine barbless point. Thus the jig sits even more secure and can be removed easily.
