I think I will make a larger hook chart - some of the boxes were untouched, some have mixed hooks, plus there were a bunch loose in the bottom of the box they came in.....plus a bunch of very sweet streamer hooks. I know Allcocks relatively well, not the Bergmans' though. I need some input from SGM members to sort them out(from anyone else who suffers the same addiction). I dug back thru some old posts: CJ, MV & Ted all have excellent information posted in their various threads, which has been very helpful.

If anyone needs certain makes/models, to finish a project or whatever, do not hesitate to ask - if I can help you, I will.

And thank you again bearbutt for posting the Ray Bergman Catalogue - the day after you posted, i received the phone call about "an old box of hooks with colored labels"......

Amazing thread guys! Somehow many years ago, I began putting most hooks in compartmented boxes and labeled them. Looking at these collections I am sorry I did! The nostalgic boxes are gems!

Great stuff

I can't help much with the ringed and kirbed/reversed hooks. But the ones in the lower left look like Mustad 36685s. Or 3365As. The Limerick bend is quite pronounced. Oatman seems to have favored it.

Let's see more of that stash!

Darren MacEarn (sp?) did quite a streamer hook chart some time ago that you might find useful/interesting: http://streamers365.com/hook-reference/

I was thinking about these hooks and i also thought, at first , those in the lower left hand were mustads. BUT I think there wire is too heavy and the bards are not as pronounced as 9575 or 3665a. White lables?

the shorter shanked hook, second from the top of the left hand column looks like and allcock as does those model perfect bends...

those offsett hooks...for whatever reason my mind said...eagle claw or pfuegger

very tough to say unless they are next to an identified specimen

Some new hooks--older Turralls, of which I have seen surprisingly few--a nicely proportioned UK-made hook:

Theroe--where's your new big hook chart? I especially want to see the Bergmans!
