Default Re: Bonefish hooks

Mustad S71SZ in z-metal is what I use. But heavy drag pressure and shallow hook penetration will bend any hook open no matter how big (or small) the bonefish. Another reason I like the S71 is the extra length of the hook shank over the 34007. It just makes a better proportioned Charlie-type fly in my opinion.
