These days is not difficult to find all type of fly hooks, you can find them in any fishing shop. As tiers I consider that we are blessed, we never had such abundance of materials 20 years ago. Now, in these days, you can find all kind of fly hooks in all sizes with all kind of shapes.
The only problem is that is no well known standard and producers do not have a clear size cart so that we can figure what we can buy online. If you do not well a certain brand is possible to receive something that was not like you expected.
Based on that I started to make photos of fly hooks on millimeter paper. In this way any beginner can understand better how a certain hook looks like.
I will complete this article in time, when I receive more models in different sizes ( is better if you visit the blog from time to time and check it to see what is new )
Because if I add all hooks I know and use in one article I will have a kilometer one, enough to get tired scrolling it. So I decided to broke it in different parts depending of shapes and type of flies.
