RE:Favorite striper hook

Thanks for the reply, I could see how that would happen.

Interesting point that the eyes give leverage, I see how it could stand between your rod tension and the bend of the hook during the set if they are too large.

That's one of the reasons I use large hooks, large flies and the smallest eyes possible... except out on the RIP.

I should show you the jelly belly which is an experiment in using tiny eyes and a chrome-lined jelly wrap to provide ballast instead of the eyes alone.
