The cost was not that much really.
I got them in sizes 12,14 and 16
8000 of each size,so I put them on my web site they work out around 5.00 sterling per 100 a whole lot cheaper than the shop prices.:grin:

$8/100 is a great price for good quality hooks.

x2, beautiful flies! I'm glad to hear you're selling some of those hooks! I was going to ask how long it takes to you use that many. Thanks for posting the pictures, I enjoy seeing the flies you tie. They are inspiring.

Those last 3 patterns look deadly to me, Laurie. And the dyed moose mane looks good.
