Big hook problem
 
I use the Mustad 37187 in size 1/0 for Pike flies. There are a lot of fly shops on line that still carry this hook but not in the 1/0 size. I'm starting to think I was the only guy out there using them. Does anyone know where you can still get them in 1/0:icon_ques :confused: I have one in the vice now and that only leaves 4 in the box.

Hi Dan,
If I recall correctly, that hook style has been discontinued by Mustad. You could get the same hook style in the Daiichi D2720. Daiichi packages the 1/0 size in 15 packs.

Any reason you don't like the 3366?

Dan I know that Mustad has renumbered a lot of there hooks. You may want to contact them to see if they have a new number or similar hook.
