Considering giving the Raven hooks a shot, how do they compare to the Trout Beads hooks?
Don’t think you can really go wrong with either. I’ve used both and still carry both with me. Both are strong hooks never straighten any of either kind. Trout beads seem to made out of a bit heavier wire then the ravens but fit and finish on both are great. I still prefer to run trout bead hooks when running beads. Seem to hook up on fish better with them when running beads. Tried other hooks but they didn’t seem work as well but that’s just my experience with them. But for running bags, waxworms or any kind of bait like that I like the raven specimen wide gap hooks.
Has anyone tried circle hooks when running beads? I'm new at the bead thing and still figuring it out. Thank you
I’ve wondered the same thing. I did some research awhile ago and came across and article in field and stream magazine called Moffitt style fly fishing. Basically the same concept of bead fishing but instead of a bead it’s a hookless fly tied above a hook and they use circle hooks.
I bought the Grammy octopus circle by mistake.worked great on spawn but running a pink worm in-line I’ve had two fish that popped of so far
Several years ago I tied up some of my favorite flies for Steelhead on circle hooks and used them quite a bit to see if the hookup rate would go up or down. I can't really say one way or the other about the hook up rate, however, I have noticed that the location of the hook in the fish moved to the lip area of the fish on almost every circle hook hooked fish. Never found one down deep or near a gill. I still use both types of hooks.
# 8 owner ssw. Sharpest hook out there.
Eagle Claw L42 size 8.
Blood Run tailout size 6 & 8
break those in half with 10#test hate um
Try the blood Run tail outs they are tough. I always seem to hook my fish right in the top center of their mouth every time too...not sure how that happens
They’re an awesome hook. I tried some this year. I like their Skeena Mosquito hook too for fishing spawn.
