Jim..a few years back I hit a deal for Eagle Claw hooks on ebay. I bought about 3000 hooks for $40 bucks. Yes they are Nickel-Teflon coated. I really like the contrast they can give to the tinsels as opposed to the bright gold finishes on some of the hooks available. Good hooks too !

It's an #8. I screwed up the last of the hackle collar and should have tightened up the hackle wrap. I'll do better next one.

Fun to tie ! Believe it or not it was the killer fly in Yellowstone country for a time. (before my time).

It looks like one more wrap of hackle there and you'd never know it. We are our own worst critic aren't we? ;]

Satisfaction is like an exhaled breath. I like the fact that there is more hill to climb or this fly fishing would bore me to death. Keeps me going.

Agreed, we'll never know it all. The moment a man ( or woman ) thinks they do, they stop learning.
