Quick update this afternoon: 10 more sizes on 6 different hooks from Mustad:
I also added a new feature to search: if the search only returns 1 hook you will be taken directly to the hook.
Today was Mustad day, and I’m halfway through the ones I have.
In total 28 new pictures uploaded to flyhooks.org, and I have another 27 to go later this week if I get the time for it. Some hooks now have more than one picture, this is really showing the information that is gathered here: look at c71snp-ss that have 6 different sizes available to see how it evolves through the sizes.
Added new functionality tonight: if you are on a page with images of the hook you can now click on the image and get a gallery-view of all the sizes of that hook. Look at f314, for example.
Here is a GH I did this morning (on a Mustad 80500BL #2/0: http://flyhooks.org/mustad/80500bl ), but with a twist: I used polar bear in the wing instead of the normal married wings. I did some small GH earlier this year with PB, but not following the pattern as strict. I wanted to have a fly that would be easy to tie, didn’t take too much time, and at the same time gave me that composition of colours and flare that a fully dressed GH have. Going to tie up some more of this in different sizes (from #1 to #5/0)
Today the time was come to do some A.Jensen, Akita and Owner hooks (before I start on the large Mustad backlog). This makes it 82 hooks with images and a total of 134 sizes that have a closeup image.
