Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hook Are use this hook in a size 4 for tying steelhead nymphs. It’s hard to find a hook with this profile in such a large size. The hook is sturdy enough for the bruisers that I am chasing, and the bend lends well to a natural looking bug. Matches perfectly with a 7/32 bead for jumbo stoneflies Copper Johns.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hook for Crayfish patterns I tie a crayfish pattern called the "Sixth Man" with this hook in a size 4. The hook is very strong and holds well on hooked fish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hook Bead or no bead, these hooks are great for nymphs and even wet flies in the smaller sizes. The longer curved shank gives the fly a more natural look in my opinion. So far these hooks have proven themselves strong and sharp.
