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.
I pretty much fall into the same camp as jaybo41 on my dry fly hooks, although lately I have been playing with the Allen hooks.
