Unhappy It's a toss up

I've had Tiemco hooks break at the bend, leaving me with perfect looking flies with no hook under them. This usually occurred due to bumps with rocks (Clousers fished in a rocky river for stripers, but little shad flies too) but the Mustad hooks would come out with only a bent hook, which could be bent back into shape. Guess it's a toss up, bend or break. Easy on the Jake brake Peter!
