On a package of Dai-Riki hooks....do they have a website listed? or corporate contact info? The distributors we buy from don't sell them.

Favorite Hooks?

Just a general question for everyone. What brands of hooks do you like best? I'm trying to figure out if I should trim some things out...or more importantly stock something we don't now.

Thanks...

I'm not 100% sure what the fly is that you are asking about. It is either a modification of a Rubberlegged Dragon or a modification of an Egan's Headstand. It might be some fly that someone...

The FlyRise would work very well. Another one to look at also, depending on the size of the rod is the Orvis Clearwater Large Arbor Reel. It is less than $100.
