Great hook, but use the small sizes.

Reviewer: from Nashville, TN

This is a very good hook for caddis larvae and pupae imitations, but--if you're tying trout flies--only use this model in size 12 and smaller sizes. In larger sizes for caddis ties, the wide gap, enhanced by the offset, can kill a trout (which is why the 37160s are known by some as "brain pins").

The 37160 is also used for "tumbling" stonefly nymphs. You can probably safely use a size 10 or 8 as long as you use plenty of lead-free wire and dubbing to fashion a very thick abdomen that closes the hook gap.

An overlooked hook...

Reviewer: from McLoud, OK US

This hook is extremely versatile, yet rarely seen on today's flies. You can tie very realistic caddis and midge pupae imitations. Instead of tying a San Juan Worm using the standard ultra chenille pattern, try wrapping this hook with thread or floss, then wrap a small ring around the body for a killer aquatic worm imitation that wriggles as it tumbles along the river bottom. The hook point is offset for easier hooksets. Very sharp and very strong. A+

Good Hooks

Reviewer: from Palm Coast, FL US

I didn't realize that these hooks have a slight offset when I bought them. It took me a while to find a use for them, but I did. I use them for small pinfish patterns (you have to work them slow in the water or the tend to swim on their side) and small topwater (spun deerhair flies).

Nice hooks

Reviewer: from Atlanta, GA US

I mostly tie Stealth Bomber on this hook in various colors. I'm getting good results. Another great hook from Mustad.
