Default Allen Hooks

I got the hooks I order from Allen Fly Fishing this week. I am quite impressed with the quality of the hooks. I am looking forward to the barbless hooks. Kudos to Justin!

Do they offer a Keel Hook used to tie the Stacked Blonde?

I agree, he has great hooks. Though I'd like to see some 4 XL streamer hooks as well as something like the Mustad 3407 style, for saltwater, some stinger hooks for bass bugs and the sort.

Yea, I knew I had the 4 XL missing from my line up. They will be ready in about 30 days. Next week I will be releasing more hook sizes on some of the hooks down to a 24.


Thanks

Justin, see if you can get a hook like the Gamakatsu C13U

Click the image to open in full size.

These are great Midge and small nymph hooks. the shape still gives that twist you want in a midge, but keeps the bead from crowding the hook gap.
