Wet Flies on Mustad Limerick Bend Hooks

Walker, Henshall, Polka, Forsyth, Royal Coachman, Orange Ibis (clockwise from top)

Forsyth #8

Henshall #8

Orange Ibis #8 (an original pattern of my design)

Polka #8

Royal Coachman #8


...and these are the hooks.

Traditionally, wet flies were often tied on Sproat Bend hooks, but in March, while I was participating at the Annual L L Bean Spring Fishing Expo, my tying friend Mike Martinek gave me a box of Mustad 36712 hooks. I tied these patterns on them and mailed them to Mike recently as a favor for his kindness. The patterns are from Trout by Ray Bergman.
