Hey, just checking to see if any one of you addicts has a huge collection of hooks. Im seeking size 16 and size 18 wet nymph hooks to start learning to tie a little smaller. Just looking for 30-40 in each size and ill toss you a couple of bucks or something.

Can't help there, but once you find the trick to tying smaller, tell me. I need all the help I can get with these size 26 short shank midge hooks. ha

Mute,

Go to your local fly shop and look for mustad hooks. you can get them usually for less than $10/100. When you get the $50 packs it may be more like $5.95. That is my goal when I buy hooks. If I have to pay over $.10/hook it grinds at me like sand in my undershorts.

Fly shops always steer me toward the 25 packs. They are like 6.95 per 25. Daiichi, Tiemco, etc. I'm like...gimme the cheapies.

Even the Mustads are going up in price but often fly shops have a surplus of older Mustads they need to get rid of at the older prices.

look around, call around, you can find them...I ain't gonna sell you mine.

I also use the Sabre hooks. I buy them on flyshack.com for $7 for 100. Free shipping on orders over $25 and it is usually at your door in 2-3 days.
