Have any of you seen one of these hooks or tied something with them? What do you think about them?

Different idea, but can't you just bend any nymph or dry fly hook to achieve the same results?

For me, I'll pass.

Seems pretty expensive to me.

I think Tiemco hooks would break if I tried to bend them like that.

You could then attach a wax worm or a small butter to it and have the best of both worlds.

It looks like a pain for one fly. Seems like a hook geared towards fly tying as an art not fishing.it's cool but I'll stick to a normal dry hook.
