Double salmon and steelhead hooks are not as popular as they were thirty years ago. Formerly, flies tied for Rogue River half-pound steelhead were ALWAYS tied on Mustad double hooks. Fly patterns like the Red And, Juicy Bug, and Silver Rogue were typically tied on double hooks in sizes #6 – #12. These double hook flies were tied with short, split-hair wings and had a most distinctive look. Some steelhead fishers used these patterns, tied on single hooks, on the Umpqua and Deschutes, with great success. The double hook fly is, today, often used as display material, although, double hook flies are still tied and fished extensively around the world. Flies tied on double hooks look and fish beautifully, and some of our tyers really love to work with these Daiichi D7131 hooks as a base for their creative salmon and steelhead flies.
