Wow guys this has been great !!! For someone who knows nothing about fishing for Tiger Musky,this has been great
I'm tying my Berry's Pike fly on A3/0 tiemco 811s. That is A stainless ring eye with A9/16 hook gap. Sounds like I really don't need to bend the point out. I also tied some Perch and Northern Pike minnow patterns on A Partridge hook called A Carrie Stevens. It is A 2/0 ten extra long streamer hook. It is three inches from the eye to the bend. It is A great lookig iron. I know she would be pleased. But now I am conserned over the remark about long hooks. I guess that is one of the things I'll have to sort out. Thank you everyone for your input.
