Up eye hook?

Postby novabass » Mon Nov 28, 2016 12:41 pm

It looks like Mustad has discontinued the R50U-94842.
So I'm wondering if there are any other up eye hooks out there I can use for flymphs?

Oh, that is bad news. I love(d) the Mustad TUE hook. I will need to stock up, before they disappear from the market. In answer to your question, Daiichi makes a Model 1740 TUE hook.

It may be they were renamed. I found this on the Anglers Workshop website: F2043 Mustad R50UNP-BR Fly Hook
