It depends upon the pattern and size, but most of my flies tied on #4 or smaller are tied on Gamakatsu SL45 bonefish hooks. They look like large trout fly hooks, but are amazingly strong. Since #4 is as large as they come, I use Gami SC15 and the Daiichi X452 for larger sized flies. Both are very strong and sticky sharp right out of the package. I also tie a few patterns on the Gami 60* jig hook (forgot the name on that one.) Unlike some, I don't really much look at the price of the hooks. Some terrific hooks approach $1.00 apiece these days. However, when you factor it into the entire equation of what a bonefish trip costs it's just not worth worrying about it.
