Fly-Tying Hooks

If you tie your own flies, picking the right hook for the right pattern is essential. Today we have a multitude of hook patterns from different suppliers, all of good quality, unlike when I started out tying my own some thirty years ago, not only were the patterns limited and fairly crude with a tendency to straighten out on a big fish, you often had to sharpen them and keep them sharp, when was the last time you had to sharpen a trout hook?
