I have been tying flies for several years and have uses several styles and brands of hooks for both fresh and saltwater flies. However, for most of my trout flies, I started out with Tiemco hooks because of the many styles and quality of the hook. As I began tying many more flies, I shifted to Mustads for the reduced cost. However, I am thinking about going back to mainly Tiemco as I like there strength and the profile of the finished fly.

I was interested in what others have experienced and welcome any comments.
