 I'm trying to find a hook to tie extended-body mayflies. The hooks that I like have a short, curved shank but I can't find the hook style number to use. A week ago I ordered some Daiichi short shanked hooks thinking they were what I wanted but they aren't. Does anyone tie extended-body mayflies on this style of hook? If so, would you please let me know what the hook style number is? I use mostly Mustad so if you are using a Mustad hook that would be even better. Thank you.

If you haven't found any yet try pastimeflies 902-622-2422. I think his name is Gord?? I've ordered from in the past, service was great and shipping was fast.
