    I tie Doctors beetles on them, it is always wise just to test one or two hooks in the packet for softness

    Are you talking about the 14723's? If so they are very old? (they are so old I remember the code! )
    Around the steel no tortur'd worm shall twine, No blood of living insect stain my line;
    Let me, less cruel, cast feather'd hook, With pliant rod athwart the pebbled brook,
    Silent along the mazy margin stray, And with fur-wrought fly delude the prey
