Barbless!

Reviewer: from Gardena, CA

Nice barbless hooks! Hook size does run a bit larger than other brands. Hoping for a size 20 and 22.

Great Hook

Reviewer: from Charlottesville, VA

I really like this hook for tying Stimulators and Garcia's mini hots. The finish is very smooth. Every hook in the pack has been of consistent quality.

My New Favorites

Reviewer: from Montana

Can't say enough about these hooks from Firehole. The 718s have become my go-to hopper hook because I had been looking for a barbless wider gap option for high-floating foam hoppers. Wicked sharp, these allow quick and sure hooksets; barbless, they make you fight fish a little more intelligently. These are also great for large stonefly nymph patterns. Not a downside, but the lack of a barb also cost me some fish when I tied a dropper or second nymph off of the bend and the dropper rig slid off. Solution was to tie my droppers off of the top hook eye and have not had that problem since. IF I was forced to make a complaint, it would only be that some of the hooks in the packs I have received managed to "hook" themselves into other hook eyes in the box and are pretty much impossible to get off, resulting in hooks I just had to throw away without using. Even with this little bit of waste, these are still a terrific value.

Great all around hooks

Reviewer: from San Francisco

Great barbless hook. Have used in size 20,18,16,14,12 and 10. I think they run a size big so if I want a size 20, I use an 18. I find this true with all Firehole hooks actually. Have used the 718 for hoppers/chubbies, and all kinds of dries from stones to drakes and small mayflies. Very strong and ever sharp.

Great terrestrial hook

Reviewer: from Minnesota

Very high quality and this size is great for hoppers in the larger sizes and ants in the smaller ones. Highly recommend.
