jimS Adrian, my hero, Lefty Kreh, has an excellent article on circle hooks in the March issue of Fly Fisherman. In essence he states that circle hooks will drastically increase hook-ups with many bottom-feeding species such as bonefish, redfish, permit, and flounder. Its a good read.

Circle Hooks for Bonefish

Since this has appeared on the Spey pages and Stiper board I thought I would post here also.

I've had deep hooking problems with small flies on J hooks on bones in the past and plan to try circles this coming April.

Eagle Claw seem to have a good range of sizes and weights:

Does anyone have any experience with Circle hooks on Bones or Tarpon, Snook, Permit etc?
