I use Montana hooks they are a decent hook a bit less expensive and the wire used is smaller in diameter to that of Tiemco..They do rust a little quicker but just don't drop your box in the river and you'll be ok.
I didnt know Eagle Claw /Wright Mcgill..made hooks for flys?

I use EC style 42 lasers for egg and caddis larvae patterns for Steelhead and have no complaints. They have an offset bend which I like on the smaller sizes, 12 & 14's...

I use Eagleclaw hooks for most of my saltwater flies.
They're cheaper than the comparable Mustads by nearly half and sharper too
