|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?
