I don’t nearly tie as many flies as the majority of the tyers here and to be honest haven’t really paid much attention to hooks. Sometimes I buy Tiemco, sometimes I buy Diachi. I can’t ever recall any hook breaking or bending unexpectedly. I don’t think the fish know the difference as far as I can tell.

All that said, if I tied as much as Dave, Hutch or Parker then it probably would matter more to me.

Merry Christmas!


You are forgetting the rainbow I hooked on the Bechler when I stayed virtuous with a dry fly after the rest of you went over the dark side with nymphs and streamers. That hook broke--that I am pretty sure it was because it was an old fly that had been put away wet in a foam fly box and rusted at the bend. That was a Mustad, not that it matters.

TMC 100's and 2487's are definitely my most used hooks. For western trips the TMC 200R gets a lot of use for hoppers, attractors, and stoneflies.
