Nice hook,
February 12, 2015
By: FredRickson
from West Yellowstone, MT
"I tied a few flies and the hook seems right for floating patterns. I especially like the weight and shank diameter when compared with other curved styles (lighter). I do wish it was barbless and had a Tiemco-like cutting point."

Runs true to size, sharp, great finish,
March 30, 2014
By: mcflyfishing
from NE PA
"The Klinkhammer is a favorite of mine. It has the three qualities I look for in a fly; easy to tie, durable, and effective. I was using the Partridge hook, this one is better. The Partridge is way oversized. A size 18 Partridge is almost equal to the size 12 Orvis. The Orvis is close to an average size 12. Like all Orvis hooks, it is very sharp, quality is excellent and it has a neat gun metal blue finish - not gaudy or off-putting to the fish. I like this hook!"

"I have been using tmc 2488 and giving them a bend. These are longer shanked and tie much better."

Smooth finish,
February 25, 2014
By: Robert1
from Chicopee, MA
"Extreemely smooth finish on the entire hook especially the hook eye. No burrs, voids, or rough surfaces on the eye that would cut into the knot resulting in tippet breaks."

Good hook for euro nymphs too,
January 10, 2014
By: BigBrooktroutguide
from western Maine
"These hooks are excellent for tying czech and bobesh patterns. They allow plenty of room to add weight without making the nymphs too robust, allowing them to sink readily by moderately leading the flie(s). Only draw back, be careful not to put to much jaw pressure on them while in your vise, they tend to get scored easily and I've broken a few when hung up on the bottom and even decent fish on 3x. Tight lines!!"
