Mustad do not  make too many  "return  loop" eye streamer hooks   anymore  Tim  as they dropped a few of the line the one  that  comes to mind first for me  now is  the 9575.   Do you have a  number  there from the ones you are using??     I  have  some Daiichi  (Dick Talleur) here  that  have the sweetest  Taper I have ever  seen  but they are a straight  eye  not  down eye.   Your welcome to  take  a bunch and see if you like them     If they were a down eye  it  would probably become my fav hook.   Partridge is talking about bringing back the Ken Baker CS17  to  production  but I am not  sure when they will make it to market....

Maybe this list  will help  you....  I will dig  through my cases of  hooks see what I have here

Darren has a great reference with Pictures of the  eyes and  loops here as well  may  help you  pick a new one too ...

They are the 9575 hooks Gary.  I have a box of them in size 8 and you and Tyson had given me a few in a size 6.  I would like to have some more in 6,4, and 10 if they can still be found.

Those older Mustad hooks are getting harder to find Tim ...the Partridge CS-17 is a very close hook to that and the Mustad 3665A (which I have some of ) but I havent seen the 9575 around for a long long time.... Jerry Doak still has the older 3665A's in size 8-14

I  figured  they were them  Tim but could not remember....    I will see what I can  find  but some of these discontinued hooks  are as  rare as  hens teeth  to come across  and they are being  bid  way  up on Ebay.  I  seen  the  discontinued CS17' s   go  for  almost $1 a  hook  the  other day on ebay.   Noooo  I  did not win them   lol

Hey Tim,

I've more 9575 6's than I'll use in a lifetime at my rate of production... I'll bring 'em to the pub.

Thanks Gary, and Mike.  Leave it to me to like a hook that is discontinued. 

Here are a couple more that I added to the streamer box tonight.

I  am  living  that  like for hard to get  hooks  too Tim.   Wish  I would have Stock piled earlier  Anyway....   

Like them flies Tim.  That  top one is  that a known  pattern  or a persona pattern??  Looks like a  killer to me
