    Excellent Purchase - 8/20/2015

    There are only a few suppliers of "big eye " hooks. When you're fingers are not as nimble as they were it's a great benefit when threading up 14's and 12's hook sizes.

    No not sent back! After trying another manufacturers hooks that bent and snapped I went back to using orvis hooks. Super strong Please Orvis can you do a barbless version. It's the way we are moving here in the UK.

    Good Quality Hook - 3/31/2015
    By: from North Yorkshire

    After the 'Ultimate Dry Fly Hook' was discontinued, I have struggle to find a good quality replacement for my dry flies. Having tried several other big name brands without being impressed, I thought I would give these ago and so far have been pleased with my purchases. The hooks appear to be uniformly sharp with good sized eyes and a fine but strong wire shank.

    I am using this type of hook for tying my favourite dry flies and would recommend their use to any tier/ dry fly fisher. Try these hook for classic Duns, or when using to tie olives

    Great dry fly hook. Bought 25...should have bought the 50 pack. Very sharp, seems to be stronger than the other hooks I used for tying...doesn't give as easily when pulling thread. Have just started tying flys and will continue to buy the Orvis brand. Thanks.
