My experience is that for those fish I want a VERY sharp hook so I tye those flies and use them with the thin, shinny SS gamagatsu hooks. They are very thin in appearance so I can not tell if the fish are spoting them but I don't think so since they are hitting them. For the stripers it's the Tiemco and Varivas...or in some cases the Trey Combs , which are shinny too.... the POINT sharpness has always been my first concern.... tiemco on the flats though
