Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Salty33 Outstanding 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. June 21, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Schaefs $ 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. October 4, 2011
Rated 3 out of 5 by Turkkildare Tying Hooks-Deflection 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. March 16, 2011

Details:When a fly recipe calls for a tmc 100 hook how do you know which white river hook to use?
Details: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.)?
A: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.
