In my early days of fly tying, I used some Carlisle style hooks for streamers. They're a long shank hook, available in several sizes & have an offset to the point. They're also relatively inexpensive & never noticed any negative affects from using them. I've heard others say they won't track straight, but that was not my experience. May have been because I was generally using large sizes, size 2 to 2/0 & simple style patterns such as bucktails or Seaducers. However, I did sometimes tie on smaller sizes & again never noticed any problems as a result.
Some styles of hooks are kirbed, some are straight, such as most fly hooks & some have a reversed point. The difference is in which direction the point is bent. A kirbed hook point is offset to the left, a straight point has no offset and a reversed point is offset to the right, all relative to the shank.
I have also straightened Carlisle style hooks, but they will sometimes break. All depends on the tempering of the metal.
Many years ago, when I was tying commercially, Capt Jeffrey Cardenas told me of a trip he made to fish for Bonefish, where the guide had used all kirbed hooks to tie the flies they used. He indicated that the hook-up rate was actually better compared to straight shank hooks.
I can't say my use of hooks with an offset to the point resulted in any better hook-ups, but that's probably more due to my inexperience at the time than anything else!
