    Default Dai-Riki hooks,

    I seem to be having trouble locating Dai-Riki hooks at the local fly shops. Is there something going on in the supply line? Or is the competition getting too hot?

    Can't say for sure but look up Caddis Fly Shop, they have a huge supply of hard to find items.

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.

    I saw this coming a couple years ago when some of the fly shops were offering discounts on the Dai-Riki hooks.
    Blue Quill Angler Fly Shop in Evergreen, CO has a limited selection on those hooks, maybe that will help:

    Feather-craft also has a selection of Dai-Riki hooks:

    From what I have been told...Dai Riki is out of business. Short story is Dan Bailey was the main imported. A few years back Dan Bailey went through some changes and things got really messy at DB. Long story short, Dai Riki hooks is gone.

    Try Firehole Outdoor Firesticks. They are available at Feathercraft and thru Firehole outdoors. I am switching over to them any way I like the gap, the price, and the owner's philosophy. Dia-Rikis were cheap and served a purpose but the Firesticks are, I think an all-round better hook at a reasonable price. I was more curious than really concerned but the Dai-Riki's were good for learning to tie and fish.
