    Mark Vendon,

    I could but I do not feel it provides anything but the writer's personal opinion and nothing more. I was just curious and thought I would purchase a few hooks and see what my personal opinion was.

    Fly fishing and fly tying are two things that I do, and when I am doing them, they are the only 2 things I think about. They clear my mind.

    Most old timers, forty years used Mustads, made in Sweden. The only hooks made here in the States as far as I know are Eagle Claw and they are heavier.
    Eagle Claw comes to mind.

    I sent an email to Turrall and received the following answer, para phrasing. They are still tying their flies on Sprite hooks but since Sprite has stopped manufacturing they will in the future go with a chemical sharpened hooks, brand unknown at this time.

    narcodog: Why do you contradict yourself about hooks made in the USA?

    I don't see any contradiction.

    You say "no hooks are made in the USA" and then you say "Eagle Claw are mad in the USA".

    I stated that the only hooks made in the States were Eagle Claw
