    I've been using Gamakatsu SL12 now for some 3 yrs on my flies.My Oldman still sends them out to me from Kingfishers in packs of 5'vs.....Half the price in Durb's than here in Europe. Just wish they would stock boxes of them though.....By the way, does anyone know of a decent stockist of these hooks on the internet selling in 100 or 200 batches?

    I must admit though I do use Tiemco 811S 3/0 for my smaller fry patterns but for larger flies I also like to use Tiemco 600SP 3/0.Super sharp and have that circle hook quality about them.

    Fishers - Ferdi stocks big boxes of the trey combes and they're very well priced. I doubt you'll find them much cheaper anywhere.
