IMO, this hook can be your "go to" hook to cover all nymph patterns from your standards to midge and everything in between. Too often, many midge patterns want you to tie on a severely curved "midge" hooks but I have seen underwater filming of the midges when they swim towards the surface are generally straighter than being in a "fetal" position. This is an extra strong hook with minimal weighing required for fine tuning your depth control with these hooks.
I'm using these in #8-14 for steelhead and bass/panfish. Daiichi hooks stay sharper than Tiemco in my experience. Bend is in between round and sproat and I like the slight curve in the hook for chironomid and stonefly patterns. Smaller beads will slide over the bend OK.
