For those who tie with Tiemco hooks. A retailer “J Stockard” has them for sale at 20% of their normal price until Dec 6. They offer this twice a year. Not sure if this helps anyone. I just purchased some 2 weeks ago and felt I was getting a good price and now this.

As Dave M would say “full disclosure I have no dog in this hunt.”

You can certainly use less expensive hooks.......but, other then, perhaps, specialty hand made hooks, you can’t buy a better hook than Tiemco’s.

I usually smile when I hear guys say TMC’s are just too expensive........while using $900 rods, $400 reels, and $130 flylines. That .32 cent hook is what connects you to that trout......along with the $1300 rest of your outfit. Don’t scrimp.......it could cost you the trout of the season......or a lifetime.

As always, ymmv.

PS: Oh, btw, for those of you that don’t know.......I don’t sell Tiemco’s.
