A terrific hook for delicate fishing
Reviewer: A viewer from LA QUINTA, CA USA
This is an extra-extra fine wire facsimile of Mustad's R50. To me, it functions as an ideal hook for lightly dressed spinners and cdc patterns, mostly in #14-16, when I can sacrifice the slightly greater strength of the R50 and similar hooks. I'll be trying out the R30 in #12 for some small stream dries where the trout often like a bigger bug but the larger wire on standard dry fly hooks isn't an advantage. A better hook finish would make it a contender for five stars.
