Re: ordered me some more materials...im gettin there
Good to see you chose the Mustad signature series hooks. I'm a circle hook guy, and just when we joined Mustad Pro Staff, they discontinued the C51S freshwater circles. Those were my favorites. I have several hundred to keep me in business for a while. The C71S-SS stainless steel saltwater version is still available, but only down to size 10. The C51 went down to 16s.
I also got several hundred 39951BLs Demon Circle hooks to try out. They don't have a long shank, but I've adapted many of my carp patterns to the shorter shank, and they seem to be working.
Good luck, and keep buying those Mustad hooks!
