flyhooks.org was launched in October 2015, just over 3 years ago, and back in January this year it crossed 1000 pictures of hooks, a great milestone after just over 2 1/2 years in operation!
This is a project that is best suited for autumn and winter: away from the fishing season and something to do when days grow short here in Norway. This year was no different, but I have been receiving hooks through the fishing season and now it was time to add these to the collection. Today 129 new hook pictures and 5 new companies are live on flyhooks.org, making it a total of 1137 hook pictures!
The main focus this time was the 20 new Ahrex hook types added (with close to complete size range available), but also 15 new Mustad hooks, Partridge M2, the new companies Kumho, Ashima, Eagle Claw, Turrall and The Fishing Collection.
Thanks to everyone that have contributed to this endeavor! I could not have done this without the help of countless people and companies from around the world! If you got hooks you want to share: please let me know. I’m also planning to take pictures of the hook boxes, so if you have empty ones I would much appreciate a donation!
