Does anyone use this hook for tying large dry flies? I am looking for something with a little bit wider gap than most hooks offer. This is a bass bug hook, but it may work for me as well...
what do you use for tying dries?

Yes these have been a popular hook among steelheaders for wakers, rifflers and bombers for quite some time I think you will find them a good application for salmonid dry fly fishing.
