I accidently ordered Dry Fly sz 18 hookes when i meant Wet Fly/Nymph. Is there going to be a big difference that i should order the correct ones. To clarify, will the ties not look right? Or will they work out just fine?

I believe the only difference is dry fly hooks are 1x strong and wet fly hooks are 2x strong, which makes one heavier to get the wet down easier.

They'll sink. Tie them fuller and use more gink to combat this.

'Tis wiser to tie wet flies on dry fly hooks than to try to float a sparsely tied dry on a nymph hook.

i tie most of my nymphs on dry fly hooks. why by two boxes of hooks,when you can buy one ? If you need more weight add lead or a bead.

I tie wild brookie flies (nymphs) on 2x extra fine hooks; if it's any consolation. Better piercing power, with less harm to the fish.
