The E.C. 413 is a carbon steel jig hook with a 60 degree bend behind the hook eye, O Shaughnessy style & is tinned for saltwater use.

There are many similar jig hooks available that will work. Just depends on the size you need. Some will be longer/shorter or heavier wire than others too. Also depends on how much you want to spend, as some brands will be more than others, but better quality & sharper.

EC has another model, a 410 that is the same as the 413, except it's a bronzed hook. It's a bit less in price & well suited for freshwater.

Neither are particularly sharp from the package however.

Try Captain Hooks Discount Warehouse for many styles of hooks, even sells in bulk. Prices are pretty good too. http://www.captainhookswarehouse.com

For items such as Sili Legs, which are the same as silicone skirt materials used to make jigs & spinnerbaits, check JannsNetCraft, Barlow's Tackle or Lure Parts Online, all of which sell lure making & fly tying supplies.

The silicone leg material (Sili Legs) sold in fly shops is fine, but comes in like 5 sections per pack, where buying as a lure material you get about 20 sections per pack for about the same price. Each section has about 20-30 legs about 5-6 inches long, so you get a lot of flies out of each section. There are several different types too with various color patterns to them, and all work well for tying flies, just depends on what you like.

Round rubber & flat rubber are not the same thing as silicone. Although they too can have some use for flies. The biggest issue with rubber legs is they tend to deteriorate over time & the color selections are not as varied as with silicone. There are however some round leg materials made with silicone, so be sure what you're buying. Again, all can be useful.
