1X-long hooks are about “one eye length” longer than standard shank length and are used for slightly longer wet flies. This length gives these hooks a “truer to nature” dimension, considering that wet flies represent mayflies, which are long-bodied insects. The Daiichi 1560 Traditional Nymph Hook has a great length for mayfly nymph imitations or wet flies featuring a bead head.
