    Unfortunately it appears that a lot of the best known manufactuers no longer package by the 100s. I haven't used flies tyed on this hook manufacturer but the packaging is by the 100s and the prices are excellent. Maybe someone can offer an opinion about the quality of the Saber fly tying hooks.

    I buy my hooks from blue ribbon flies online in 100 Piece boxes. You can shop online there

    Huh? Tiemco, Daiichi, Gamakatsu, Eagle Claw, and even Mustad (granted not all styles) all still sell boxes of 100. Dai-Riki is the only mainstream and common in US company I can think of that only sells hooks in a single quantity retail (boxes of 50).

    If the OP is worried about paying shipping, what he/she really needs to do is to shop around a bit for a vendor that offer free shipping on a minimum order.

    Allen will sell you hooks by the package but they do not always have every option in stock. I have ordered 100 hooks from them of one type and they were packaged into quantities of 25 but shipping on hooks is free.
