I need size 2 and 1/0 hooks. I can give you caribou hair and fox strips (rabbit strips except fox fur.) I am even willing to buy them (Mikechell, can I do that?)

TIER ... as I explained, you now have more than 40 posts.  You can trade, buy and sell to your heart's content.

I don't think I have any of either of those. 

I might have some 1/0 stinger hooks, but I think the ones I have are 2/0.  And then I jump to 5/0 worm hooks in one direction and size 6 in the other.  I'm at work, 47 miles from home at the moment, so I don't know off the top of my head.  Also, I know I don't have very many, maybe 5 or 6 of the stinger hooks.

TIER, since your willing to buy, I suggest Sportsman's Warehouse on
423 Merhar Ave., Fairbanks, AK 99701 .
You're in Fairbanks, aren't you?
It's about as cheap as the postage.

I just ordered and received some hooks from E-bay China and was very impressed.

They look very similar to Owner Mosquito hooks and are in my opinion as sharp.

The only difference is the black nickle is a little lighter in color and the wire they are made from are slightly thicker on the China hooks...not a bad thing.

#2 hook is the equivalent to the #11 China hook ...Cost: 100 hooks for $2.29 shipped.

1/0 hook is the equivalent to the #15 China hook...Cost: 100 hooks for $3.19 shipped.

Shipping time 21 days.

You are welcome CB

 

Copper Baitfish Size #2

 

1. Silver foil:  Wrap down the hook and back again; coat with UV resin (optional).

2. Belly: White buck-tail 2x hook length tied in tapered.

3. FTD Crystal Hair: Hot White 10 strands tied in, then doubled back over itself and tied down (gives off a subtle sparkle like a bait-fish).

4. FTD Northern Lights: Copper Brown 8 strands tied in doubled back as above.

5. Add a 1/2 hitch and a touch of CA glue now.

6. Over Wing: Bison dark chocolate (back of a soft crinkly buck-tail, or any dark supple hair) length is 50% longer than the finished tail length. Tie in 30% then doubled back as above. Next create a few turn thread dam for the nose of the fly, whip finish and CA glue.

7. Eyes: 6mm with glue removed from the back with alcohol. Attached with generous amount of Bohning Fletch Tite.

Attach eyes so that no part protrudes below the thread work so as to aide in hooking fish.
