    The Tactical Fly Fisher probably carries the most extensive line - up of different brand jig hooks including Hanak, Hends, Dohiku, Firehole Sticks, Gamakatsu, Partridge, Orientsun and Fulling Mill:

    Check out Soaring Eagle Outfitters in Blue Ridge and Clarksville Georgia They carry 3 types/price points on jig hooks and have a huge selection of slotted tungsten. They have a Christmas Sale going on of Buy 2 get 1 free on their premium hooks. I solely tie with them. They also have a ton of pictures on their facebook page and instagram.

    It's funny you mention this and I just saw this post today, I was talking to a friend, who has been guiding for redfish in Delacroix. He had a couple of SC-15 hooks open up on him on bull reds. He has used these same hooks on tarpon for years without a failure. Sometimes I think a bad batch of steel gets by their QC people.
