Standard dry fly dimensions
Precisely finished eye
To better serve our fly-tying customers, White River Fly Shop has developed its very own line of high-quality fly hooks. You will find all of the latest and most popular styles in this tyer-friendly lineup. These chemically sharpened, high-carbon steel fly hooks represent the latest in design, materials, and manufacturing processes. White River Fly Hooks are available in several distinct series to meet every tying need. In keeping with our philosophy, these premium grade fly hooks offer outstanding quality at an outstanding price.
These no. 10 dry fly hooks are really outstanding for use with floating water spiders or bugs that I tie for fly fishing. The bug floats high, the hook point is sharp for an easy hook set, and it's a very reliable and sufficiently strong hook.
I mash down the barb with pliers so that I can quickly remove the hook from a bream or young bass without harming the fish, which I usually release.

$ for quality
Thes hooks come in a Pack of 25. I have used about ten of them, tieing parachute Adams. 2 have broke where the shank meets the bend while I made my beginning wraps. However, I feel that these hooks are great quality for the money that I spent on them.

The hooks are fairly priced and the shipping was very fast from BPS. However; the hooks seem to have low strength quality and they are easily deflected with average tying pressure. I have had about 1 out of 5 hooks bend on me after tying a fly. The packaging does not even come with a magnetic backing to help maintain and retrieve the hooks. I would skip this product going forward and pay the extra $1-1.50 for premium hooks.

I have previously purchased White River fly hooks that I cannot determine the correct usage for. I have some WR-001 hooks and some WR-004 hooks. Can someone tell me what these hooks are supposed to be designed as (nymph, dry, etc.)?
WR-001 is billed as a dry fly hook because of the light wire, but it's a good all-rounder, and can be used for standard length nymphs and wets too. WR-004 is a good hook for Wooly Boogers and long shanked wet flies. The wire is a bit too heavy for hackled dry flies, but works fine for foam bodied hoppers and stoneflies.
