Hook sizes and Brands Chart?

Rate this topic

10 posts in this topic

I'm wondering if there is a chart anywhere that compares hooks and sizes, lengths.

 

Like Brand A is equal to Brand B in all aspects, except quality.

 

For example, is a Tiemco 800s exactly the same size as a cheaper Taurus 800 Which is the same size/shank length as a Mustad X.

 

Sometimes don't want to spend the money on the higher quality hooks, and am guessing that its close too it.

 

Just wondering if that has been covered and available anywhere.

The book Fly Tying Tips & Reference Guide by Dick Stewart has a page that cross-references hooks from manufacturers Daiichi, DaiRicki, Mustad, Partridge and Tiemco. It contains most of the same info from the link posted with a little variation. I paid $13.95 for the book a few years back.

 

Chock full of nidbits of useful stuff.

ActionB, I have a glossy chart that shows the various hooks and cross references by maker. I don't know how to scan it in and post it as an attachment . PM me where to mail you one and I will do so. - Neil
