Tiemco fly hooks were first made in 1984 by Tiemco's hook designer, Ken Shimazaki. It was not an auspicious time to introduce Japanese hooks to the U.S. Undeterred, Umpqua's founder, Dennis Black, one of America's greatest commercial tyers, tested these new hooks, and with a simple handshake with Tiemco's Toshi Shimoda, agreed to distribute the in the U.S. With that courageous decision, fly tying- and fly fishing- would be changed forever.
The Tiemco 2488H is an incredibly versatile hook. Widely used for smaller egg flies but also great for nymphs and emergers. Also a very popular hook for hanging off smaller tube flies. Straight eye, 2X heavy, 3X short, 3X wide, forged bronze. Sizes 12-16.
