Default Re: Allen & Co. hooks

Frank;
I have tyed about 500-600 flies on Justins hooks (even wore my old vise out) The caddis, 2488 drys, scud, nymph and wet hooks are great I have yet too try the dry hooks (1x fine), I have some 200R hooks and streamer hooks std,2x,3x,and 6x long (they look very good) I have yet too fish the 200R and streamer hooks on some of the larger hooks I have come across a few with minor blemishes ( Not any near as many as I have had with the mustard hooks I used too get)

Most of the TMC hooks I have used were bad batches and were poorly tempered and ither broke or bent I have not bought more since.
