I'll have to give them hooks a try!

Bob Pink john,

also have to report good early results with the Varivas. nice penetration, easy removal... no drops this season that I can attribute to the hook. been using the 1/0 - 2/0 most of the time. haven't tried any patterns on the smaller sizes (yet! )

striblue Yes ,those are the Verivas... I have not had a lot of time with them, but this weekend they were excellent.. a great hook up. barbs squashed. The gap is the key..they almost hooked up like circle hooks.. Two of the fish I took ,the hook went in the inner lip then out, then in again... no damage in removing it... This hook will increase the takes I think, but the real test comes later this season.

Broadbill John -

That's a nice bowl of candy. What hook are you using there? Is that the Varivas you've been working with? Nice gap. Any experience with hookup ratios/location in the mouth yet? TIA.

Very Nice

Very nice. Damn I need a digital camera!! I have some really nice Popovics Epoxy Sandeels I want to show. I'll bring a few flies for you to take some pictures of, if your offer to do so still stands?

Epoxy/Polar fiber Silversides

Here is a collection of silversides tied with three colors of polar fiber and epoxied heads..the one in the upper right is not epoxy but is a siliconed head. These look real in the water.
