For me, the Tiemco 921 is fast becoming my favorite small fly hook. Do others have any pet hooks out there?

I liked Sprite hooks, from Redditch. Apparently they were/are? across the lane from Partridge. I bought some at a show a while back and haven't found them since.

Paul, if you don't mind ordering:

only in 14 and 16, though.

Or, from across the pond:

When I started tying (1954) hook choices were minimal. There are a lot of quality hooks on today's market, so I opt for the best value, one with top quality and low cost. The answer for me is Togen hooks. Pretty wide variety, strong, sharp, and mini barbs... with a more than reasonable price

I like the ones that have fish attached to them

Now, Eric, as my dad used to tell me, everyone likes a little *ss every now and then, but nobody likes a smart*ss. ;>

Even though they are getting hard to find in many fly shops around the around, i do love my mustad hooks.
Most of us fish our whole lives..not knowing its not the fish that we are after.
