Daiichi 1100 Big Eye Hook in Down-Eye Style- In 1990 Jim Lepage and the Orvis Co. designed and patented the original "Big Eye" hook. The original big eye was a straight eyed dry fly hook with an oversized eye (Orvis 4641 or Daiichi 1110) to facilitate easy threading of tippets. The Orvis 4864 or Daiichi 1100 was introduced in 1994. It is the same basic design as to 1110 except it is the down-eyed version, which is more popular for dry flies. Many fly tiers prefer down-eye hooks for their looks, particularly on classic patterns. Down-eye style hooks make tying parachute fly patterns easier. These hooks have the same great point, perfect bend, and whisker barb as our original Big Eye hooks. 1 XWide, 1 XFine, Big Eye. Size 22 Big Eye hooks have the same size eye as a conventional size 16 hook! All of this comes with only a minuscule 4.5% increase in weight.
