The TMC 8089 NP is a great hook for tying surface poppers, mouse patterns and pollywogs. It is a wide gap, fine wire, nickel plated hook that will keep your dries floating high. And with the nickel plating you can fish intertidal or saltwater areas without worrying about corrosion.

Note that as a popper hook the gap is larger than usual. The #6 gap is 1/2″ and the #2 is 5/8″.
