Great hook assortment, just a few problems. -
By: BKalpin from Altadena,CA
These hook set are great as far as the varieties offered. They are a good value for a fly tyer who is looking to tie similar patterns in different sizes. There are 2 problems with these assortments. One is that the labels printed on the outside of the box don't relate to anything as far as the hook style number. For instance instead of listing Orvis #1523 size 14 the label reads DF1 #14. If you're going to bother printing on the case why not put the hook style number instead of the meaningless designation of dry fly 1. The other problem I have is that when you get the assortment the case has been taped shut with packing tape. When you peel off the packing tape it takes the inked label off of the case. But if the labels mean nothing I guess my later gripe isn't as big of a deal.

This product is great. The price is worth the value of the hooks alone, but the case is almost the best part. If you're like me you sit down to tie and have to look in 10 different places to find hooks, and then try to discern between two different pouches of size 18 hooks to try to figure out which one has the 2x shank. This case takes care of that problem. It's labeled and magnetic, so the hooks stay where you put them. This makes for less time and effort to stay organized,and far fewer discussions with my better half about why she keeps finding tiny fishing hooks with her bare feet...
Excellent choice -

I like the selection of hooks and the magnetic box in which the hooks come. It's a great way to keep hooks organized.
as expected -

Most of the hooks were in the correct compartments, unlike many of the other reviews.
Love these! -

Have purchased several of these sets. This is the only way I'll buy hooks from now on. Easy to identify, great selection of sizes, easy to store. Hooks stay organized in separate compartments. Great quality.
box not refillable -

The hooks are great, but what happens when you want to refill individual hook types? I went to the Orvis site, but the hooks are designated (SE3 #10) for example but you can't just go order that hook. You can guess, but there is no way to directly reorder individual hooks to replenish.
A practical product -

Good hooks but the really useful part is the storage container - a really useful way to find the hooks I want easily and spot when the ones I use most often are running out. A touch pricey... but then again, hooks are no matter which reputable company you buy them from.
These are a great way to tranport hooks to the river, club meetings, or shows.
Great deal on great hooks -

Very economical way to purchase very good quality hooks. I already have a hook box but this one will be great for travel when making flies on the go. Thanks Orvis for a great product!
