Selecting a Hook for Trout Flies


Selecting a Hook for Trout Flies

In the final analysis the question of what style of hook is the most efficient is of great importance. In fact, one could almost say that the choice of the hook on which the fly is dressed is the great question of tackle selection. For no matter how wisely and well the angler discriminates in regard to rod, reel and line, after all it is the hook which by its efficiency or the lack thereof produces results or the contrary. But, again in the final analysis, we find experienced anglers using with success a good many different sorts of hooks. It would seem then that, with a few exceptions, the most popular hooks are all about equally good, and that the angler who fails to hook his fish should not "blame the gun." Briefly, and theoretically, the most efficient hook is one having a "direct draught" so that the point is immediately sent home in the direction of the force applied. However, we will not here discuss angles of draught. If the flies you buy are tied upon either Sproat, O'Shaugnessy, or Sneck hooks, you should have no trouble with them. I have mentioned the Sneck hook, not because I like or use it myself, but because in the opinion of many experienced fly-fishermen it is a good hook. Another good hook is the Pennell. Personally I always use the Sproat or O'Shaugnessy when I can find the sort of fly I want tied upon either of them. But a good many dealers use only the Sneck hooks for the smaller size flies, smaller than No. 8, and for the "midges." There is no need to advise only hooks of good grade. If you buy decent flies the hooks are pretty sure to be all right.
