This hook is now exactly as designed by Hans van Klinken – the extra bend at the eye is designed to ensure that wing and thorax are positioned and proportioned to the original pattern.
The thorax should be both in front and behind the wing.
Hans ties the thorax exactly to the bend.
With this configuration of the bend you can fish the fly even deeper and hopefully catch more fish ! Straight-Eye, Black Nickel
