Nice and sunny and not too cold. . Thought I'd go and venture out so I hit Twanoh in the salt. Holy crap! Is it always that windy there? I don't fish on the HC a whole lot, hardly at all. Anyhow I fished it and used the wind to my advantage but it got old. So I drove back to my local water and fished my new lite brite tied flies on my Mustad SS Circle streamer hooks to continue my personal research regarding this hooks performance with SRC fishing. The beach I fish has been hit and miss as of late but I keep going back. The wind was blowing there as well onto shore, so I waded out, turn around and cast back to shore. Well, it paid off, caught a few nice Cutties exceeding a foot in length. I'm noticing that the hooks work great, however a size 4 is a little too big IMHO. The flies were a bit long but that's what's been working, about 3" in length. The hook goes into the side of the mouth but comes out too close near the eye. Last night I tied some up in size 6 and 8's but they seem a tad small the way the hook gap runs. We'll see how they fare. The barbs are so small and thin that when you pinch them down they are pretty much non-existent making hook removal very easy and effortless. So far I really do like this hook, it really fully hooks the fish (the way it goes in and wraps around so to speak). Guess I'll have to wait a few days to fish again, the tides are getting funky and it's family time.
