Default Re: Favorite dry fly hook....

TMC 100/100BL/900 BL or Daiichi 1170-1190 for the majority of my dries. I'll use 1270 Daiichi or TMC 200R for hoppers/crickets/stimulators. TMC 921's for midges, small shank with wide gap. I also use this hook for Two Bits ironically enough. When I'm tying Hex's for smallies I use the 100BL SP. They are sweet hooks, but pricy. I have a few old Mustads that I'll use from time to time but I stick with TMC or Daiichi exclusively. My favorite is probably the 900 BL. Black shank adds stealth for really picky spring creek trout and barbless hook.
