Back in the 50's when I was a kid and started tying flies, an old man gave me some hooks with big eyes like that. They were open eyed and were used by tying some bucktail on them and then closing the eye on a tin squid. The big eye was to accommodate the metal ring at the rear of the squid and still allow it to swing free.
