Tube Fly Hooks?

Rate this topic

4 posts in this topic

I've just started tying flies for the salt on tubes. I was curious what hooks folks like to use in the salt when fishing tube flies.

Suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks,

I don't mess with tubes but when I tie on shanks (Intruders) I like the Gama octopus. If it's a really light little tube, maybe a Owner Mosquito.

I use freshwater hooks. They are stronger, cheaper and if/when I break a leader hook rusts away faster. I use same one hook of each size/shape and when it starts to rust (what takes a many trips) I pick a new one.

 

Straight eye and short shank type is what I use from various manufacturers.

Tiemco 800S for the little ones, and SL12's for the big nasties.
