Default Kamasan Hooks

Hi Folks,
Can anyone recommend a US based retailer for Kamasan hooks, at a reasonable price. They don't appear to be as popular here as in the UK.
Thanks in advance

As I understand it, Daiichi are the US version of Kamasan. You might actually find the same hook just a touch cheaper.

JS Fly fishing has hooks on sale for 20% off this month, so just a little bit of time left to get a deal.

Laurie's are excellent, and the best price. I have at least 10X100 packs and they tie up well, so even with postage - best all around.

Mike Hogue of Badger Creek Fly Tying used to carry them, but he told me they are no longer distributed in the US.

Laurie,
I'm just getting my fly tying gear in order after moving to the US. Do you have a website or should we do this through PM?
