Hooks

Hi tyers?
I see you are tying flies ( actually gorgeous flies!!) with different colored hooks....
Would you recommend for a black fly ( ex: black bear green butt etc....) a black hook?
Is the hook color dependant on the fly color??

I would think so, no??

Thanks for your thoughts and expertise!!

Ann

Ann,

I would use black, black chrome, black nickel, or dark blue on a dark fly. I use nickle plated Alec Jackson Spey Hooks on spey flies like Glasso's that use florescent floss for a portion of the body in order to avoid having to wrap the body with silver tinsel before the floss is used. The nickle hook or silver tinsel underbody keeps the florescent floss from darkening when wet. Otherwise, I use black or dark blue hooks.
