Like I tell all my clients who go on my trips. You spends $$$$ of dollars for a trip of a life time and you skimp on the cheapest hook. That's the least expensive part of your trip. Why take a chance of losing that fish of a life time. On the other side of the coin, I did lose a big bone fish in Aitutaki a few years ago. Had almost to hand, then he took one last surge and straightened out the hook. It was Gamakatsu SL 45. The only hook I've had straightened out in my years I've been fly fishing (50 years)
