    Ak....try Mad River Outfitters on Bethel Road. They will have baitlholder hooks that small for fly tying. Really not that badly you buy quantity (50+).

    if you don't get some soon, i have a few size 14, 16, and 18's if you still need them when you come to west branch.
  8. Crappielooker: Check out Mad River Outfitters they will have hooks that small but not in the bait keeper style. I don't recall ever seeing a bait keeper that small. You might try Cabelas or Bass Pro also. :B

    Yep AK, try the fly shops like Mad River...i think they carry down to #24's...but for a hook like that you'll need under 2 lb test to go threw the eye of the

    Bet the match fishing guys in Chicago could "hook" you up with some that small?

    I think the smallest ive bought locally is #14 in baitholder style.

    I agree on the "fly shop" comment. Gander Mountain sells fly fishing supplies at their stores. I tie flies & there's lots of small hooks available that are even smaller than what you want. I sometimes use smaller fly hooks to catch bait. They work well on big creek chubs, shiners, shad, alewives etc.. But you can also get real small gold treble hooks that work well on bigger herring, shad & alewives, because they're attracted to the gold flash in the water. If you put a drop weight on your line & then tie in 6 to 12 little gold trebles above it, you can jig & snag them around piers & docks.
