Re: Hooks-Then vs. Now

Dennis I always try to support my last two fly shops but unless I'm in dire need of hooks I order all I can from Capt Hooks online. Great thing about them you can get them in quantities of 100, 250, 500 or 1000. at 250 5% discount, 500 10%, and 1000 15%. http://www.captainhookswarehouse.com/index.cf...
