I'm with Hawn on this. If you are concerned at all about hookups, I wouldn't bend the entire gap away from the original axis of the hook shank.

When crappie fishing, I've opened the hook gap of small hooks (widened it) for more and better hookups. The hook shank axis remains unchanged. I don't believe that I'd want to bend the entire gap away from the axis on a j-hook. Doing so could very well change the way the hook functions physically on a hookset, particularly towards the roof and corners of the mouth.

Otherwise, very nice-looking tie. Cool
