egg hooks 6-16 https://mustad-fishi...et?color=Bronze
Lots of kirbed and reversed hooks out there by multiple manufacturers that could be used, most are intended as bait hooks- some common wisdom once held that kirbed or reversed hooks cause the fly to spin the fly in current or on a retrieve, I've never tested that notion.

I do this before I start tying. Would really suck to do it after you have the fly done and break the hook.
It does put the hook at a funky angle to tie but there is a simple remedy. Turn the vise so the hook is perpendicular to you.
