Hi Angler…Turned out hook eye is good for tying streamer flies, especially for Atlantic Salmon. Hook down eye are common on baitholder/bait hooks since they use the ‘leverage’ principle when setting the hook. Straight hooks are standard on most simple hook patterns. used for all-round baitfishng & Siwash hooks….God bless you, Italo
