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 8089 NP bass bug hook has a straight eye, fine wire, wide gape, forged, nickel plated. Great selling hook for years and years now. We tie all of our bass bugs on these hooks...they just take too long to tie on an inferior hook!
Tiemco TMC 8089 NP bass bug hooks sold here in the 25 packs. Please remember that if you need larger quantities, please let us know and we'll be happy to help.
