Ok in larger sizes
Reviewer: A viewer from Fort Worth, TX US
I have to agree with Robert on his assessment on hook âbendabilityâ. I own several sizes in this model and truly only have issues with sizes #18 and smaller. Size #16 and larger, no problem and recommend. Size #18 and smaller, can not recommend.
Good hook for buzzers, brassies, scuds, and soft h
Reviewer: A viewer from Saskatchewan, Canada
The Mustad C49S hook has a weight, shape and gape that make it great for buzzers (chironomids), brassies and scuds. I've also used C49S for caddis-imitating soft hackles to fish on the surface or just below it. Unlike another reviewer I've never lost a fish due to a bent or broken C49S hook. But I did bend a couple of size 18's in the vise when I was being careless.
seems just right
Reviewer: A viewer from Rehobeth, AL US
I use this hook in size 10 to tie the "Hum Bug" pattern for panfish. Using chenille for body material and no extra weight, the hook provides a nice slow sink rate. The curved shank adds a touch of natural appearance to any impressionistic wet fly.
