I'm kinda of new to tying saltwater flies. I'm trying then for SRC in sizes 6 and 8. I've been using Mustad 34007s and Daichi 2546s, because they are stainless steel. I'm interested in the Ahrex hooks, but they and other alternatives send to use a corrosion resident finish over corrosion prone metal. If I damage the finish in the vise and by squeezing the Barb, won't they rust? TMCs send way too expensive. What do you all like?
