still have a couple of boxes of keel hooks I purchased in the eighties. used to have more, but someone on this web site was looking for keel hooks so I sent him a box only thing I asked for was a couple of the flies he was going to tie. that was a bunch of years back, and haven't heard from hom yet.

anyhow , what I did not like about them was the shank length. I felt it was way to long. hpe the new version has a shorter shank.
