I have just received some new stocks of Grip Hooks , these really are a fantastic range of hooks for the fly tyer. Grip Hooks come in a wide range of sizes, patterns and wire weights.
The nymph hook is the bread and butter pattern that we sell most of and there are plenty of competitors our there and we all have our favourites. Like all these things we need confidence in out hooks -so we stick to what we know.
However if you are looking for variations on a theme Grip offer a range of nymph hooks in three gauges of wire and shank lengths.
There are also barbless patterns with unrivalled hold.
Dry Fly Hooks
Again there are plenty of dry fly hooks out there – but the Grip range has just that extra choice, including the top selling 11801 in extra light wire.
In addition there are some variations in pattern that give improved presentation, hooking and profiles. Such as the 11413BL shown on the left.
This has variation on the Sproat bend to give better hooking and hold for this barbless variation.
Once again Grip offer something more than just variation in sizes for their we hooks. There is the choice of wire weight and shank length over the range of patterns offered that is designed to improve the performance in specific applications.
As usual Grip offer barbless patterns that are designed to give the angler good hold without the barb.
Caddis and Grub Patterns
These patterns give the profile for a wide range of patterns such as shrimp and and Czech nymphs. They can also be used for buzzers and the light wire patterns can be used for emergers.
Grip also offer up eye variations for these emerger patterns which improves presentation and hooking.
Of course there are also barbless patterns for the increasing numbers of catch and release fisheries.
