"I started using Grip hooks after I first saw them at last year's ICAST convention. For the past year I've used them primarily for my surf patterns in Southern California and I am pleased with how well they have held up. Dragging flies across sand bottoms can quickly dull hook points but these stay remarkably sharp after hours of fishing. They have become my primary choice when tying flies for the surf "
