Re the viewer from Battle Mountain
The difference between the 2457 and 2487 is only the wire size. The 2487 is great on small fish but when you get into larger fish and their aggressive fighting methods they tend to bend or straighten the hook and in most cases a lost fish happens. Living in New Zealand I prefer to use the heavier gauge for nymphing as it limits the disappointment of losing a good fish due to using the lighter wire. An easy way to test the strength of a hook is to place in your vise and pluck it like a guitar string to see if it springs back to its original position. You will be surprised! Some have no tension and I place in the trash.
