Re: Straigtht or down eye?
Really doesn't matter much. Daiichi 1650 size 10, a straight eye, my favorite egg hook & the hook I use for most water conditions. Size 10 is very close to a Tiemco size 12. For smaller egg patterns Mustad C67 or Daiichi 1640, also straight eyed hooks. Smallest I fish is a 12.
