New hook
 
Anyone ever tried these. Just saw a commercial and think it is a sweet idea!

Hooks

I am getting a sample and I will report more once I have had hands on with them.

Hi Joni,

The things that come from the mind of Man. Very interesting but I am not sure how it will work for flies. Seems like it will make a strange looking fly. It will definitely be quick to tie. I will be looking for your report.

Pre ties maybe, but I am thinking...."STINGERS" Yeah baby. I went fishing last Sat. FISH ON! then slack. I was using bunny leeches, so I am thinking they were grabbing rabbit, not hook.
Okay, so I tie my leeches with a tag off the back. Now I can attach a stinger if needed, or take it off without shortening the tag.....
I AM ALWAYS THINKING>>>>ARGH!!!!

Joni: I can definitely see where that hook would work as stingers on streamers. Very interesting concept.

Hi Joni,

I hadn't thought about a stinger hook. That would be a quick way to add or remove the stinger.
