Hey, just finished reading through Trey Combs old book Steelhead FLy Fishing, and, as with every read through of that book, I focused in on something. There is a portion of that book where Mr. Combs is talking about how traditional Salmon Hooks don't ride right in the water. He says that you need a shorter heavier hook than what they are marketed for to get the fly to ride right in the fast currents we deal with. He also asserts that Spey flies are the most structurally unstable fly because of its small wing and large hackle. Anyone agree or disagree with this? Is this one of those things that modern technology and improved hook quality than from 15 years ago has taken care of? Any thoughts are appreciated.
