Had to order a new batch of hooks. They are now made in 5/0 nickle, green and red, 6/0 nickle and a whopping 9/0. I had to get a pack to try. This was a steroid version of my flies.
I will have to tie a few more monsters to try and refine it. I could have left three or four inches on the body material to make it larger. We will have to try. The 9/0 are in the lower left corner.
