White River Fly Shop® Dry Fly Hook
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.
