I purchased these hooks from Dave’s shop via Caster’s website. I knew they would be a solid choice for tying Chocklett’s feather gamechangers, since I feel Dave wouldn’t carry a product that would be subpar... I was not disappointed. The Ahrex NS172 was the perfect choice for the front hook. It has a short shank and wide hook gap, making the fly easier to attain a “neutral” angle in the water, without the need for additional weight. Great option for those of us who use sink tips to get a fly down in the water column.
Very nice with multiple uses.

This hook is pretty awesome. From grubs to baitfish patterns, this short shank large gape hook does it all. Super sharp and robust.

Clearly one of the best hooks on the market! These things are SHARP! One of the best points I have come across. You owe it to yourself to get some.
