  1. I was just wondnering if anyone has knowledge of where I can obtain "keel hooks"?? I have a few in size two and twelve and fear that may be all I get. Thanks!!!!!!!!!

    Could you be more specific on Hook model# and whom it was made by?

  3. Mustad 79666s are ones I have heard about...but mine are Wright/McGill-Eagle Claw (fairly old I believe) in style 1213. Unfortunately, that is all I have to go on right now. Thanks!! :)
  4. Tall cool one

    Just bend a saltwater hook to suit ya,works the same.TC1
  5. Thanks TC1, I have a feeling that is where I may end up. I am guessing you tie using keel-style hooks? Just curious what flies you are creating. I will try to post some of mine soon. Also, I ordered hooks from Orvis that they call "swimming nymph" hooks...look a little like an artificial worm hook...going to give them a try as well. Thanks again!
