What Size Hook?

Postby Stan Wright » Sun Sep 03, 2006 4:48 pm

Dean Shirota didn't tell me the weight of the 25 inch bone fish he caught. What's amazing is the 1/0 size hook he was using for the fly. Normally, his bone fish flys like the Christmas Island Special and Crazy Charlie are tied on a #4 size hook. Now Dean says he's going to tie some bonefish flys on a 2/0 hook. Well, our Hawaii bones usually run 6 to 12 pounds. How big a hook have you used for a bone fish fly?

Why let the truth stand in the way of a good fish story.
