Does anybody know what makes Tiemco hooks so expensive ? there even more than
Daiichi hooks I dont buy cheap .99cent hooks for 100 but I'm sure not going to pay a crazy price either, us Senior Citizens have to watch every penny, things are going up in price faster than I can count well not SS that's the same.

Flytyerinpa, I’m just going to take a swing at this and say from my experience tiemco hooks are are very strong and not as prone to breakage as some others including Daiichi. Now I use both, and I also like full milling hooks, and many others. That’s the beauty of this hobby you have many choices. I like tiemcos for there strength and you get them barbless, I don’t fish with barbed hooks any more, again a personal choice, so I suggest to seek out the hooks that fit your budget and your needs and get them now because it looks like things are only going to get worse as far as cost and availability. Wish it weren’t so but it is what it is.
Mike.

Thanks Partsman, I dont really need any hooks I probably have over 10,000 in every style and size possible enough for my life time, I was just wondering why they were so expensive.

Probably you are paying for the name. Just like Orvis products are priced out of reach for many clients. Ditto for Simms waders and rain jackets. Why in the world does a rain jacket have to cost $500?
