The Sprite Barbless Wide Gape Jig hook is a short-shank pattern that combines the strength and hook setting properties of the Nordic Tube Single with the added shank length to enable the fly dresser to make deadly hair-wing patterns. This is the ideal hook to tie modern jig nymphs with Tungsten Slotted Beads  or Tungsten Slotted Beads . Jig tungsten nymphs sink with the hook tip always pointing upwards. This allow to significantly reduce ground stalls and helps to preserve the sharpness of the hook tip from contact with the rocks.
