:o Mooshoo's has salmon hooks? Every time I have been in there they have had absolutely nothing to tie a feather to....Don't that just figure? Oh well, I spent some bucks on my wife (income tax return) so whether she likes it or not I am gonna get me some hooks somewhere...just a matter of finding my best dollar's worth...

Murray Mooshoo's is a joke and have no interest in getting into tying gear. I have made several trips in there when they opened. I was told tying stuff was on order and would be here in a couple of weeks. I am not the only one that was told to either. After 4 or 5 trips in there I decided no more. Two weeks has turned into a year and a half and still no tying stuff. I won't waste my time stopping in there anymore.

That's pretty much the experience I had...I guess they go by the thinking,"Tell the customer anything to get them to buy or come back" philosophy....

My humble attempt at the "klink" ....hook is a modified Allen 2302 #12, body is a porcupine quill, post is masons line, thorax is peacock herl, rib is wire from a furnace water heater, hackle is cheap cream Metz dry hackle.....


Haven't mastered the "post" and hackle technique yet.....as you can see... ;D

Here's a couple I got from Hans 2 years ago when I met him on his way thru from NB salmon fishing.  A great tier & even nicer man.
