    Nice hooks, packaging! - 4/1/2013
    By: from California

    These are heavy, sturdy hooks, sharp, everything advertised but why the industrial strength package? To get a hook out requires unfolding a flap (that comes with a tuck in slip band) removing two layers of cardboard (labelling and advertising essentially), and trying to get a hook out of the tight clear plastic. It doesn't need to be this difficult. Otherwise, strong hook. Haven't fished with them yet.

    Pretty much your regular old nymph hook. Nothing wrong here other than they should be offers in barbless as well. Oddly Orvis is now describing hooks as 2x Strong as opposed to 2x Heavy which is a change that seems needless. Kind of a solution in search of a problem...

    I have try'ed other makes of hooks but always come back to these, they are sharp and in my opinion are good for nymphs, I use them for GRHE and PTN

    I find these hooks provide the right proportion to my soft hackled flies. The heavy wire gets the flies down to the right part of the water column in a hurry.

    Great hook for bead heads - 11/5/2011

    I have used these hooks along with most of the other manufacturers. The hooks are cosistently sharp & strong. They are certainly as good or better than anything else on the market. This particular hook seems to be a shade longer than my old 3906B hooks, making them perfect for bead heads without throwing off the proportions of the fly.

    Great Nymph Hooks. - 3/15/2010

    For my traditional hare's ear, prince and pheasent tail nymphs, I don't stray from this hook. It hold added weight well (whether you're adding body weight with non-toxic metals, or adding bead heads or tung heads). The hooks last forever and some of my most commonly used flies end up on them. I always need a batch of nymphs to start every season, whether it's for myself, or a gift for a fishing buddy.
