Great for Small Dries! -
By: Steveatparkcity from Park City
These are the best flies for tying small flies and parachutes. Not only do they make it easier to tie the fly to tippet - the larger eye means it's easier to avoid crowding the eye when tying size 22s and 24s. Likewise on small parachutes. I haven't tied any elk hair caddis with them but my guess is they'll be easier to tie and tie on due to the big eye. The extra 7% weight doesn't affect their flotation at all.

I highly recommend Orvis Big eye hooks. They make it easier to tie the tippet to my flies.

I bought these for tying some size 20 Griffiths gnats and other small dry flies. I did just that and when I went to tie one on to fool a trout, I found it surprised at how easily it was to tie this on. Great, strong, and sharp hook.

These are good quality and very sharp hooks. Orvis has a great selection for most any purpose. I own several styles. You can take this review and add it to any of the many sizes, shapes and styles of hooks I have purchased from Orvis. Based on other hooks I purchased from other suppliers, I consider Orvis' prices to be very competitive as well!

These are great hooks! The big eye makes it so easy to tie to a tippet. All Orvis hooks are first class and I will be back to buy more!
Big Eye for Bad Eyes -
By: biggpapag from Fairview N.C.
These are great hooks, very sharp and strong. Plus its easy to thread a 7x or 8x tippet.
Just What It Should Be -
By: Stoughmg from Edinburg, Texas, USA
This little hook is exactly what it should be. It is small, light, strong and sharp. Lends itself well to the tying of Light and medium gray Caddis and Gray Fox Cayhill lures. Tiny Pearl Parachutes also work out well with this particular hook. A lightly hackled Fuzzy Red Ant or Flying Black Ant works out well on this hook too. It is just what it should be.
easy to thread -
The big eye really works as intended and does not detract from the balance of the fly in any way. In addition these, hooks are sharp out of the pack. An excellent dry fly hook
Excellent Hook -

If you are reading this review, you are a fly tier. And if you tie flies, you care about quality and the finished product. These are high quality hooks - strong and sharp. The big eye also is a huge help on the river - especially at my age.
