Thanks! 

Got some improving to do with the search and compare functionality, but data first, then implement the rest of the site :)

New update today: http://dryfly.me/201...-similar-hooks/

 

For each hook there is now a automatic search that looks for other hooks that have similar measurements as the hook you are looking at, some examples can be seen here:

Can you explain the automatic search for similar hooks? Do they appear in the far right margin?

Hi!
The search is done behind the scene when you load a hook page, if any hooks are found you get a list of these right underneath the pictures of the different hook sizes (the heading is "Similar hooks"), take a look at http://flyhooks.org/tiemco/tmc811s and scroll down to "Similar hooks"

Thanks eide,

You are doing us all a genuine service, which is desperately needed.

Being able to compare one manufacturers hook against another manufactures hook so that we can make an informed choice
is desperately needed.

Your grid system works... If only manufacturers would adopt it we would all save not simply money , but would not be sitting with boxes of hooks which do not do what we had hoped for and are left feeling conned.

I have been trying to find wide gaps hooks , some with short shanks for midge type flies and others with long shanks for muddler type
flies.

We can all read things like 2x long etc but one manufactures 2x is different from another's 2x and for some of us size does matter.

Again, thanks Eide, for a great job you are doing, greatfuy appreciated.

Best wishes

A summer update on flyhooks.org: added 100+ new hook images for Hanak: https://flyhooks.org/hanak

I have also updated the layout and made it more mobile-friendly, so I hope it can continue to help out in the search for the best hook :)
