Default Re: Beginner fly tyers material list

Darn good thread! Excellent job!

I'll get a bit more specific for this. The three most common hooks for trout flies are:
Tiemco TMC 100 - Down Eye, 1X Fine, Wide Gape, Forged, Bronze - Dry Flies
Tiemco TMC 3761 - Sproat Bend, Down Eye, 2X Heavy, 1X Long, Forged, Bronze - Nymphs & Wet Flies
Tiemco TMC 5263 - Perfect Bend, Down Eye, 2X Heavy, 3X Long, Forged, Bronze - Nymphs & Streamers

If you want to stock up on hooks, you will need a selection of the models listed above.

Other brands have hooks that are shaped to the same specifications. They just have different model numbers.
