Thread: Hook Quality, bad batch or bad brand

    I bought some flies online before that had some bad hooks. I contacted them and they replaced them with new flies. It was a good name brand hook as well. Daiichi. I still buy from them because of the good customer service.

    Joni has been tying with Allen hooks lately. Which means she ties double- for me and her. Less expensive, and haven't had any problems so far. For what they cost, you might want to think about giving them a shot sooner or later.

    i was literally just looking at their website. When I burn through the 500 Dai-Riki hooks on my desk I will definitely give it a shot.

    500 wont take long as I am learning so tying tons. Next weekend me and 2 guys are taking our annual pilgrimage to Wyoming for a long day of fishing (3hr drive). Ive tied and am tying us up each 1/2 dozen of the usual suspects for this spot. PT,Cadds Pupa, RS2, Zebra midge,Prince Nymph , Copper Johns all in various sizes. So they will each get a few dozen.
