Hello,

Does anyone know what hooks were used in Marbury's book? I'm particulary interested in the hooks used to tie the Lake Flies.

Thanks

Anton

Also the Gaelic Supreme "Lee Schechter" hooks are replicas of the lake fly hooks. Unfortunately the hook maker (Vince Green?) passed away several years ago, so the stock of Gaelic Supreme hooks (e.g. Martinek Rangeley, Schechter, etc.) and Sprite salmon hooks (same maker, different distributor) is dwindling.

 

Also some older Mustad Hooks are a similar shape, such as the 3371 in a size 2 or 1 or 2/0.
