Good hooks, but beware of the size!

Reviewer: from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

I've been rather impressed with the J.Stockard hook line lately. They have a better price for the 50 pack than they used to and to me they're comparable to Dai-riki hooks. They're similar in price and about the same cost to quality ratio.

These hooks have a very nice shape to them and are considerably longer than your average fly tying jig hook. They're also quite a lot larger. This is a double edged sword, as I ordered size 16 Jig hooks only to find they're a fair bit bigger, in length and width, than my size 14 jig hooks from a different manufacturer. So I look at it as I essentially ordered Size 14 Jig Hooks 2xLong. Fortunately, I can make use of this, but BEWARE of this if you're looking for smaller size jig hooks.

There's nothing wrong with the quality of the hooks, other than the occasional bad hook in a pack. All in all, this just means you'll have to look to a different hook brand to get the smaller sizes like true 16 or 18.

nice, reasonable hook

Reviewer: from rio rancho nm

These are nice reasonably priced hooks for jig nymphs. The only thing to be aware of is they run large. I bought size 10-16 and the 16's have the gape of a size 12.

size?

Reviewer: from wichita, ks

Actually, the hooks are fine. I would give more stars, but they appear large to be for the size indicated as compared to other brands. I laid them by other hooks and their 12 is about the size of a 10 in most other brands, etc.

Oversized gape & approx 1XL

Reviewer: from South-eastern PA, USA

Disclaimer - I bummed a couple of these hooks from a buddy when over at his house tying, and I personally didn't buy them, but what I'm reviewing is truly the J2 604 Jig hook in size 16. Now that that's out of the way - The hooks are extremely strong, though not stout or XH (extra heavy). They are, however, wide-gaped, and possibly XL (extra-long). They're somewhere between 1XL and slightly more, but not 2XL. It isn't that big of a deal in the larger sizes, at least to me, as I just use a nominal size 12 to tie a size 10, or what JS calls a size 14 for a size 12, but I can see how smaller sizes may pose a problem. Also, the size consistency has not been spot on - for being "larger than typical", they range from under 1XL to 2XL in the same 50-pack that my friend had. The gape was consistently the same oversized gape compared to the hook size they claim to be, though. You can't beat the price and the sturdiness / ruggedness of the hooks, but the consistency in sizing is not the greatest. Again, this is just based on what I experienced with my friend's batch of 50 hooks. All in all, they'll still work for euro style nymphing, and I'll probably buy a batch of my own, due to the low price, and gamble on the size... but I'm getting one size smaller than I really want, just to hedge my bets.

less snags

Reviewer: from SW PA

Used these to tie small crawfish, prince nymphs and stoneflies. All have worked great on trout and smallmouth with much less snagging of the bottom. strong hooks.
