I wanted to test a few products for coating Crease and foam flies that would;
- 1) be flexible
- 2) dry quickly
- 3) not be too heavy.
The hooks I used? You just don't find them like this anymore. No one makes a fine wire hook with the strength of these! They won't bend and it take a lot to break one (more than the strength of your leader!). I got lucky when I found them and bought a few hundred. If you can find them, buy them!
