Excellent hooks -
By: MontanaBill from Bozeman, MT
Size 22 - age 67. Need I say more? These hooks are excellent quality and sharpness at a great price.
The Eye's Have It -
By: Gregb226 from Augusta, Maine
Easy when tying a fly on and tying a fly. It is easier to see where 1/3 behind the eye is as measurement for tying. It's much easier to find and hit the eye first time when on the water and the eye is mush easier to clear of head cement. The biggest plus for me is in low light or using a head lamp, you can easily find the eye.
Great Hooks -
By: Dave001 from Las Cruces, New Mexico
These are great hooks to fish with as well as tying flies. I don't understand why more types of hooks are not offered in the big eye style. the large eyes make it easy to keep from crowding the eye while tying and even if you do crowd the eye, it is more forgiving. I'm 63 with not so good eye and large eye keep me fishing and not trying to thread the eye of the hook.
Big Eye Straught-Eye Hooks -
By: AvidAngler from Western Ohio
Excellent for tying small hooks to a tippet in low light conditions. Also enough hook shank length to add a bead if desired when tying some fly patterns.
More time on the water -
By: ogdenboys from NE Oklahoma
I fish small. 24-28 for adult midges in my area and most areas for that matter. The Orvis Big Eyes simply give me more time on the water. A cold windy day or a calm mild day can be testy fishing size 24 and down. An 8x tippet is always testy and these big eyes do help. I wish Orvis sized below a 26 but I am glad they go that small. I have never seen a rejection because of the eye size, if I did I would not use these hooks. I am on the water more and simply catch more fish.
Excellent product! -
By: Perdix from Worcestershire, UK
As age has started to creep up on me I noticed that the eyes of fly hooks started being made smaller, seemingly ;-) But then I noticed that those nice people from Orvis catered for old guys like me by making their Big Eyed Hooks. They are great hooks, well tempered and finely made, but with a BIG HOOK EYE. Well done Orvis, thank you!
SHARP !! -
By: PNWJeeper from High Cascades of Oregon
Tacky sharp hooks and I can thread 6X tippets through the eyes of these Big Eye hooks without my 3 power readers, even if I crowd the eyes a little when tying my favorite size 18 emergers. AMAZING hooks.
Great for Old Eyes -
I love this product because it enables me to do what I love, flyfishing, with less effort and frustration. In the dim light it is a Godsend which allows me to fish longer and enjoy the evening.
