Thread: What uses for 9x long streamer hook.

  1. #1

    Default What uses for 9x long streamer hook.

    I saw some over on fly tying supplies site and wondered if anyone has ever tied a fly with a 9x long hook.

    If so, what species was it for and do you have a picture?

    Just curious.

    Thanks,
    Cardo

    Rangely streamers come to mind

    Ah, the grey ghost and such, I thought that. I picked up some 5xlong hooks for those but haven't tied any yet.

    thx

    I never fished with one Cardo, they were used for trolling flies I believe. I do have some I believe are old Mustad 3665-A 10X long.

    Most flies on them I believe are tied for show these days. Of course I'm no expert but I always use #4 & 6 4X and 7X for streamers. I think that's what they are.....

    Here's a very old streamer on a 10X


    The picture does nothing to show scale but I believe the hook is about 3" long

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

    I use them for trolling for landlocks and brook trout in the Rangeley region of Maine just after ice-out.
