Good for crease flies -
By: Robang from Birmingham, AL
After much searching, I discovered this hook. It is perfect for making fresh water crease flies. The crease fly is a great surface fly that mimics a struggling bait fish. Bass or any fish that eat minnows will go for a crease fly. This hook is very sharp and, although not a heavy wire hook, I have not had any trouble with it bending on big fish.
Big Hooks for Big Flies -

I tie a lot of very large Pike and Muskie flies. There for I need very large hooks. Orvis provides just what I am looking for. Thats why I purchase these large Pike and Muskie hooks for my flies.
Looking for the right hook -
Good heavy hook. Lots of room to tie in material for your fly. This is the hook for pike and muskie!
Great hook -
This hook is very strong, sharp, and durable. My favorite hook to use and tie with!
Can't Wait -
Can't wait to make up some pike bunny flies and try these out on some monsters next spring!
Good Hook.. -

This is almost the perfect pike hook. Shank length is perfect for large synthetic flies especially in the 6/0. If it came with a larger gape, Orvis wouldn't be able to make them fast enough. Having said this it's still the best that's out there for tying large synthetic bait fish patterns.

A near perfect hook for predator species ... just a tad on the long side for my tastes, but it is exceedingly strong and obscenely sharp. If you were a fish this hook could give you a very bad day.
For steelhead -
This hook is a good choice for streamer flies if you are looking for a hook larger than sz. 1. The round bend takes cones and beads and the long shank is a great hook for tying marabou steelhead streamers.
