Ebay – Hooked Edition

I’ve been finding a lot of great hook auctions lately from dome of my favorite brands like Willis, Sealey and Partridge. Below is a sample of some of the best.

1. I found this rare auction for Willis 10xl Antique streamer hooks and am keeping an eagle eye on it. The seller chbfisher has posted some really wonderful hook auctions over the past month. The hook include Ron Reinhold salmon irons, castle arms Allcocks streamers, Willis hooks and some huge Partridge 9/0 hooks.

2. Keeping along the Willis theme, there is also a cache of Willis salmon, dry fly and streamer hooks being offered by fisherjohnsr. Keep this seller bookmarked as I’ve seen a steady stream of Willis being sold here. For anyone wanting to find a few nice antique hooks to tie on, here is the spot.

4. bobfly.2007 is another of my favorite sellers because of the nice feathers he sells and the small lots of blind eye salmon hooks. Keep this book marke to pick up some rarer feather assortments and blind eye salmon hooks.

4. I found this seller who has a ton of Partridge hooks and Mustad hooks. A lot of these like the Partridge CS10/3 Blind eye Bartleet hooks are no longer being made. The starting prices are set low, so there is lots of potential for some good buys. The Auction titles aren’t great, so look for hidden gems with this seller engravedstones.

Shucked Up Emerger

This little fly makes great up of the TMC 108sp-bl with it’s little bend at the eye. Richard Strolis has some real gems on his vimeo page, and this is just one. My fly box is getting stuffed from all of the great patterns we have featured this past season and so I guess I’ll need to squeeze a few of these into the dry box too. the sparse shuck and the snow shoe hare will really make this a killer fly. He has also added some action footage of how the flies look on the water. Killer stuff.
