Default Re: Campeche Tarpon and Varivas hooks!

Bob: No problems with wire thickness. I believe the sharpness and angle compensate for any thickness because these things go in. And on the baby fish in Mexico, I'm strip-setting with a fast 7wt and a softer 8wt, and it still goes in easily. I am using at least 20lb. leaders though, with a 30 or 40 shock, so I can stick it to 'em pretty good with that!

I'm a little over a week away from 7 more days of it down there, so I'll get to see if the results match the last trip, or if I was just lucky. I'm not fishing with any flies on any other hook though! I know my results with those. About par, on a good day.
