Straight Eye, Heavy Wire Curved Hooks?

I currently tie most of my chironomids on heavy wire scud hooks or Daiichi 1760 curved hooks.
I would like to find a heavy wire hook with a straight eye that's comparable to the 1760.
Any suggestions?

How about Mustad 37160 BR wide-gap hooks, Dean? I've used them down to size 14, but they make them down to size 18.

I tied some Damsel nymphs on the 14s for a Nephew & he has caught some big trout on them back home. I've used them from sizes 8 to 12 for stand-up carp patterns with no issues - and with a high percentage of hook-ups.IMGP0431.JPG

That's what I was looking for when I found these. If somebody comes-up with a source, we'll both be happy :D.

Those Firehole hooks look great. I’ve been using the Alec Jackson chiro hooks and they have been awesome so far. Was tired of bending out lighter hooks on bigger fish. They do have a slight bend at the eye though and are kind of spendy.
