TMC 5263 is just a straight shank hook and not remotely big enough for what FI is doing there. He is using a 2/0 hook. The Weamer Truform hooks and swimming nymph hooks do not come in large enough sizes.

Pooping while on the clock is one of the finer things in life

Some long shank streamer hooks have leverage problems, IMO this hook doesn't.

A size #2 or #4 TMC 5263 is a fine hook for what he is doing. One of the best mouse patterns (for me anyway) was originally tied on the 5263.

We're talking mice / vole pattern here, not rat.

I've moved on to fishing Yorkie patterns for 'gators in the Monocacy Creek watershed.

I fished a mouse last weekend all day at fishermans paradise in the high water. That is some of the most fun fishing ive had in awhile!

I didnt land any fish but I moved at least 16. By moved I mean ether they charged it, hit and missed it, or got it and I screwed up.

But its so exciting to see the big head of a 15"+ fish come out of nowhere to slam a big fly on the surface.

I found that the plop up against the bank was the trigger and a dead drift was mandatory. If I "swam" the mouse then it got little or no attention. Also I was fishing between 11:00 a.m.- 4:00 pm although it was overcast w/ high flows.

FL spoiled me. I'd walk out of the back porch into pitch black, take three steps and launch a Gurgler into the weeds.

Strip, stri-splash. 20" LMB. Over and over and over again.

Kinda like masturbation, ultimately pointless but it didn't stop me from doing it so my fingers chaffed.
