Making hooks

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone had ever tried to make thier own hooks or has information about making hooks.

I have and it is not too difficult just takes a few essential tools and bit of practice. The most difficult is finding a source for the hook wire, but there are some supplier's out there. There is a book by Darrel Martin titled The Fly-fisher's Craft that has a good explaination of the process and equipment used to get a beginner started. The sister site to this one Classicflytying.com should also be a good source of info as many of the guys on there have or do make their own hooks.
