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!
Mustad has been all i have ever used with my flies and never had a problem...never caught a ton of fish but have a few and never had a problem with them and the price is good on them i think so ill keep usin them
