Coarse fishing hooks for fly tying

Coarse fishing hooks for fly tying


Over the last few weeks I have been experimenting with using coarse fishing hooks to tie spider type flies.

I think that there are a number of advantages for using these hooks which are:

1. They are usually barbless

2. They have a short shank so that the flies are small

3. The eye is directly in line with leader

4. These hooks are readily at all fishing tackle shops.
