Just purchased these hooks in size 6 and 8 for a salmon trip to the salmon river in pulaski ny. They performed great! Never bent on a fish and stayed sharp the whole time. Great price as well. Cant find them cheaper anywhere else. The best hooks I've found for salmon by far!

Nice hook for big fish. Heavy wire, upturned eye. Great hook at a modest price.
