Well said... I'm with Jr Spey on price/performance philosophy. I've also had good luck with Tiemco stainless SW hooks. I use the 811s when a lighter wire is ok, and the 800s for heavy wire applications... but like the Gammys, Daiichis, owner, and several others.

For tailers, I will even go to a light, bronze freshwater hook for the softest possible landing and it's dramatically reduced my spook offs. The fly is either washed thoroughly or discarded (it's a simple tie that drives them nuts, fortunately).

Man, I am getting some bonefish jones as the weather turns frigid.
