Orientsun 7216 Barbless Heavy Dry Fly/Light Nymph Hook

( 2 Reviews )

These are very good barbless hooks. Great quality steel, a shape that holds fish very well, and an affordable price. The 7216 is good for lighter wired nymphs or bushy or foam dry flies where you want a heavier wire.

  • 1x strong dry fly wire
  • Upturned point
  • Standard shank length
  • Wide gap
  • Sizes 8-20 and they are a true size length
  • 25 hooks per pack

Note: Orientsun labels this hook a dry fly only hook but it can be used for lighter wire nymphs.

Measured total hook lengths are:

  • #6 = 20.6 mm
  • #8 = 17.8 mm
  • #10 = 15.9 mm 
  • #12 = 14.4 mm

Orient Sun 7216

I used and really liked the OS 7224, but since it only went down to size 16 and I wanted an 18, I tried this 7216. Same general shape, just a little lighter wire that seems VERY resistant to bending, and maybe even sharper. I really like this hook.

Great Hooks

I like this hook for smaller perdigons or lightly weighted euro nymphs. If i'm tying something heavier I prefer the 7224 as it's a little more durable. This hook is also a great dry fly hook. I've used it for little CDC patterns such as shuttlecocks and also standard hackle patterns.
