That's for certain, Mark; trying to dig more than one point on the same hook out of the jaw of a fish, particularly one with teeth such as any of the members of the pike and perch family or many of the saltwater species we pursue, can be tricky and hard on the fish when the angler can't get the hooks out. Singles are better than multiples, and frankly I think that they're easier to set the hook with, also. Of course, the other issue is the action of the fly in the water with a pair of points rather than one. Nice flies, though, Sean, good use of grizzly.
