Thanks, I didn't know that.


*EDIT*

Just checked and didn't see them.

Not quite the same hook. That is not to say it won't work better than AVG, it just doesn't have the complete profile that I like about the Orvis Hooks.

Still, I will buy some and try them.

I've have the Allen ones in 2 different sizes. They work well for me. If you do buy some, they always seem to be larger than the size listed. Then again, it seems like hook sizes are never what I expect, and every company seems to do it differently. I can never tell whats what with those damned things.

Nick, & Mudbug, that Allen hook looks like the Tiemco 8089 hook. Nice hook, but pricey( Tiemco). I've not tried any of the Allen hooks, but have in mind to give them a try next time I need hooks. Which for the hooks I already have will be about the year 3030 I think.



Mud, I have some Mustad hooks that look like the hook you posted, more so than the Allen that Nick posted. The ones I have were also intended to be plastic bait hooks I think, they have some lead molded on them, but it's easily removed. First time I saw them my mind started churning & I knew they would work just fine as a fly hook!

Of course, my thought was they would be a good hook for topwater bugs. Never gave the bendback idea much thought. Thanks!
