RE:Favorite striper hook
I really like the Gamakatsu Trey Combs hooks - real sharp, real strong, real expensive, but, generally, I think you get what you pay for. The Japanese really do know how to produce high quality steel!
I picked up some Owner circle hooks the other day which I plan to use on big streamers for Trevally in the upcoming Christmas Island trip. May try some small ones for bonefish flies. It's the ideal environment to experiment!
