I agree, they probably would catch fish, but it's all about embracing your "inner snob". As I improve my standards keep going up. I'll have three hundred flies by opening day but will only use about the most recent twenty.

Those big salmon and streamer hooks wouldn't be cheap. Back in the early 90's I remember hooks being less than half the price they are now. They were sold in packs of 50 and hundred for about what they want for 25 now a days.
