    My vote is for Daiichi, the use in all my flies, my favorite models are 1120 Size 6 and 8, 1720 Size 4 and X510 Size 4 for my flies articulate Rio Grande Queen

    i use the dairiki #810 almost exclusively for articulated bugs. People dont realize how important hook gap is on bigs flies, and this babys got it. Its their bass hook and its saltwater ready although it isnt stainless. IGFA shark records have been landed on this hook. Very very durable hook, although I am sure there are sharper... Set the hook better. At one point i was using all gamakatsu but I was breaking hook points off a small guy off fat chick in the club.
    Since I dont tie many nymphs or dries, I m just going to leave out my other 1 cent.
