Re: Hook size FYI
Well I guess the size difference by brands has been going on for a long time! Been reading Flies by J Edson Leonard written in 1950. He has several hook size charts featuring Allcock hooks and Mustads . The hooks per size by each brand are clearly different with the Mustads being larger in all categories. Funny thing is he's got a diagram of the standard gauge for hooks on the opposing page from the two brand pictures!
