One of the most extensive internet sites for hook comparison and
substitution is Killroy's Fly Tying (http://www.killroys.com), click
on HOOKS at the bottom. The hook charts should be printed in
'landscape orientation.' There are five hook manufacturers listed.
All five charts should be printed to get the complete list of all
hooks for each manufacturer.
The charts also explain the different characteristics of each hook,
as to the construction of the hook (eye, shank, weight, bend and barbs).
There are likely other sites that have extensive hook charts, but this
is my favorite.
Please check out the Fly Tying Section, in the Bulletin Board, on FAOL.
If you have any questions, tips, or techniques; send them along.
Most of this material someone else thought of it before we did,
they just forgot to tell anyone about it. Or else we just forgot
about it, while learning something else. Let us share with
each other, all the things we know! ~ Steven H.
