Saber Hooks?

Post by chase creek » Sun Apr 21, 2019 4:54 pm

Anyone have any experience (good or bad) with Saber hooks? Price seems good.

I have been using Saber hooks for about 8 years now. I consider them a good buy and good hooks. Quality is fine and they are unbreakable. Of course I don’t catch huge fish, but never had one fail me.

Althehackleman, Howdy;

WELCOME TO THE FORUM!!!

Nice first post. Should you find the time it would be nice (NOT necessary), to give us some
insight into yourself, but only if you desire.
Be sure to check-out the reference section lot's of goodies there.

I have heard or seen saber hooks somewhere. There are a lot of hooks available today. Hard to make a decision and settle on a particular brand or style anymore.
I hate it when I think I'm buying organic vegetables, and when I get home I discover they are just regular donuts.

Cark- I agree, lots of hooks available these days, and most are pretty good. Saw some "swimmy" hooks in the right sizes for $6.95/100. Not a bad price.

Rodger, I think these were the "Swimmy" hooks you referred to. I believe that I received them from my sister and her daughters a year ago for a birthday or Christmas present. I haven't tried them on the water yet , but they seem to be nice enough. Not a heavy hook, so they should ride in the film nicely.

Looks like them, Dave. When I first got them, thought they were a little light, but have tied on them, and they seem to be ok. Bright finish. I agree; they should ride in the film fine.

HI, I'm new to Flymphfourm, my name is Ed I live in east central Pa Schuylkill County to be exact, I tie flys and fish for trout, and naturally I'm always looking for new patterns .
Now about Saber Hooks, I use to use Mustad hooks, then I switched to Daiichi hooks, a buddy of mine use to sell them for $9.00 a hundred, the bad news he retired after 30+ years, so I checked on line for them when I saw the prices they wanted I started looking for a replacement.
When I found Saber hooks for $7.00 I though they cant be any good, but I'm open minded and tried then, after my first fishing trip with them I was sold, I've been using them ever since, yea sure you find one bad one in a box of 100 but you'll find a bad one or two in any brand hooks.
