Gamakatsu Sc-15 Hook
Setting the hook is one of the more important things we do in fishing. So, the hook is a pretty darn important piece of equipment. I tie lots and lots of coastal cutthroat flies and fully switched to the SC-15. This hook still has the short shank we are use to in saltwater fishing but in the smaller sizes the wire in much smaller in diameter. Therefore, penetration is greater due to the more needle like nature of this hook. The SC-15 is light and will not add much weight to your fly (let the line do the sinking). I have also used this hook for tarpon flies and it worked very well.
