Adrian, I've been warned to stay away from circle hooks for any fly that is not swallowed(like crab flies), because they tend to slide right out of the fish's mouth. they were developed for bait fishing, so that when the fish takes off, the hook will slide up out of the gut and anchor in the corner of the fish's mouth. I wouldn't want you to miss any fish on a trip like that!!! Tom D

RE:Favorite striper hook

I haven't yet seen these new hooks w/ point more in line with the eye, but I am familiar with the Gamakatsu SC-15 wide gape nickel plated which have that profile. These have been around for at least a year if not two. They are popular for tying flies where the material flares off the dorsal side of the fly instead of being in-line. I've also used them for epoxy headed sand eels occasionally as well.

Curious to know if the new hooks mentioned are a similar profile as the SC-15 Gami?
