Hooks for Trout Flies
A great deal depends upon the hooks on which the flies are dressed. The Sproat hook, all things considered, is much the best. Above all things avoid cheap flies; they are flimsily tied upon hooks of poor quality and are far more deceiving to the tyro fly-fisher than to the brook trout. It is a very good plan to use the coachman, a consistently successful fly at all times and seasons, for your end fly. The white wing of this fly is easily seen in broken water, and sometimes when using small, dark colored flies in the rapids it is almost impossible to tell just where the cast is. A good strong fly-book to hold at least four dozen flies is necessary.
