I still have not found any size #32  fly hooks. Does anyone have any Tiemco 518 size 32 and/or Mustad size #32 hooks that they would sell. I'm looking for 6 of each.

Anyone with one please give us a picture with a dime for scale.

 

Does anyone actually use them on the water?

 

What leader fits the eye?  Do you debarb them?

 Here's another comparison shot of a TMC518 #32 near a Mustad 277 #32 . The graph is the same size scale that eide posted in his pic. One of the guys that I bought the Mustads from years ago wrote me that he used to use them on some of the streams in Pennsylvania. He would tie a turle knot of 1/2 lb. Tortue tippet on the shank, then superglue it. While it was wet, he would press a small ball of dubbing to it. He couldn't see it while fishing, so he used a small piece of bright foam 18 inches up on the tippet as a strike indicator. Trout would take it, but hooking the fish was another story. 

 

Regards,

                 Mark

WOW!  That's a super dramatic example of different manufacturers sizing systems !!!
