I am a new fly tyer, tying anything I can at the moment to gain experience and improve/expand my technique (saltwater flies only!). I see 60 degree jig hooks are popular for tying certain patterns, so I have bought some to practice with.

I would be interested to better understand the benefits of a jig hook over a straight shank hook from any of the experienced tyers on this board.
