Decent but not excellent
Reviewer: A viewer from PRINCETON, NJ USA
I have been very satisfied with several hooks in JS's line but overall I'm not as happy with their dry fly hooks. My main complaint is that they are too easily bent. Even when tying with 6/0 or 70 denier thread the thread tension torques the fly making accurate tying a real pain. It also doesn't raise my confidence in these hooks' ability to hold a big fish. This is in contrast to other brands which don't bend nearly as much under pressure, as well as in contrast to other hooks in JS's series which also are much stiffer and stronger feeling (such as their curved nymph hooks). That said, the price is great and the hooks are sharp. If you're are only tying simple patterns and catching smaller fish these hooks are a good buy.

These are great hooks for the price. Just as good if not better than the name brands! I haven't fished with them yet, but I can't see why they wouldn't catch the fish. Great so far for tying. My early black stone flys look great on these hooks.
