Default 8x long streamer hooks

Anyone know where I could buy some 8X long streamer hooks in sizes 2, 4 and 6? The 10X long hooks don't seem to look right.

Poor quality materials are destined to discourage beginner tiers and cause greater expense when the time comes to replace them.

YOUR way is not the ONLY way when tying flies!

Fly tyers can be masters of making things complicated!

You're only limited by lack of imagination. Be creative, experiment.
