Nice work Karsten - very nice! I’m just wondering....what type of hook is that??

I guess everyone knew that question was coming ......

I'm embarrassed to say I've never tied a herl head wet before :oops: It seemed like an appropriate pattern to tie on these gorgeous E Hille and company #201 size 14 hooks kindly gifted to me by Dana/Theroe.

I absolutely love this iron, I'll have to take a super macro of the barb/business end when I get time, incredible artifact! Thanks so much again Dana, I'm forever in your debt...

I probably should have practiced before tying these on the real deal, razor blades may still come out :roll:

The first tie uses golden plover for the hackle and the second tie golden partridge. I didn't have 6B so used antique gold waxed with cobblers wax.

Thank u Raymond, ur selfless generosity never ceases to amaze me. :D Unfortunately I’ve misplaced ur postal address ;)

Thank u again Dana, this hook is quite possibly one of my personal favs, it is perfect in its form. That symmetry of the round bend and the detail under macro shows the unique details/thumbprint of every iron where the barb has been created. Truly special! I will save these first two ties for u. More to come watch this space...

your comments are EXACTLY what draws me to these old irons......every maker leaves their mark, ever so differently!
