Been Searching -

I purchased some Klinkhammer flies tied on these hooks several years ago in Jackson and found them to be very strong, outlasting many other hook brands of the same style. The large hard pulling bows straighten other inferior hooks these are some of the strongest I've found in small sizes!
Too Narrow of Gap -
By: Kingspin from Houston
Quality on this hook is good, but the hook gap is just too narrow for what I use it for. I ordered size 14 and 16. Sent the 16's back because of the hook gap. I prefer the 1641 hook, It is heavier and fits my style. Orvis hooks are the best.
Great hooks -
The size 20s and 22s are perfect for pheasant tails and other baetis nymphs. Sharp, strong, and great shape.
A great midge hook -

I'm still unclear as to wether Orvis hooks are Tiemcos. Maybe they are, maybe not. But I use this hook interchangeably with the Tiemco 200R. A great hook for midge patterns in small sizes or for other patterns as you like.

Bought 2 sizes of these at the weekend and was very impressed with the quality. The curve gives the fly a really good shape. Although they are a bit more expensive than the brand I normally buy, Orvis do these down to the smaller sizes I need where I fish, as one of the other reviewers noted, just buy the packets of 50 and they are good value.
For tying Orvis hooks hold up to the pressure and strain a novice like me put on them. I especially like to use Orvis hooks on the smaller sizes 18 to 24.

This hook has become my all around tying and fishing hook. Dries, wets and nymphs, this has got to be the best hook going. The curve in this hook gives a natural bend to any fly and is easy to tie feather and fur around.
