Tube Fly Question
This approach to saltwater flytying has intrigued me for the past few months because of its versatility in tying a variety of large patterns. I've got the HMH tube fly attachment, mandrels, tubes, etc. What I don't have is a supply of short shank, wide gape saltwater hooks that fit in the junction tubing for quick release from the tube fly on the hookset.
A quick review of available hooks that have a short shank, somewhat wide gape, and are saltwater compatible reveals one type - Tiemco 611SP. It is available only in sizes 1/0 thru 3/0.
Any suggestions would be welcome!
