flyhooks.org – 300+ new hooks

This autumn I have spent a lot of time getting up to speed on the new hooks that people from all over the world have sent me: 300+ new hooks for http://flyhooks.org/ have been measured, photographed and added to the different hooks that I have registered so far. A big thank you to all those that have contributed to the collection that now counts 682 hook sizes with images (accross 280 different hooks).

Highlights are: Knapek, Dohiku & Claw (almost) complete sets of all hooks and sizes, a large batch of classic streamers, many new Mustad  hooks and some very special dryfly hooks that I’ll get back to in later blogposts.

Even before I was done with this large batch of new hooks I got some new from France that I haven’t seen before and a couple of TMC and Mustad that will be added once I add some more functionality to the site: I’ll improve the search and layout of the site, maybe add a comment section and look at integrating it better with flytyer.org

This project would not have been where it is today without your help, so if you have a hook or two to spare, contact me through the contact form, and I’ll get back to you with address and information about the process.

flyhooks.org – new search feature

I’ll keep this blog updated with information about new things happening on flyhooks.org to make sure you know what is happening.

From a couple of days ago you can now check the “Pictures” box on the search page and you will only search on the hooks that have a closeup image  like the one above. If you get a search result you will get a thumbnail of each hook in the list: this image is clickable and you will go into gallery-mode in the search result where you can use the arrow keys to navigate between the hooks.

I’ll remove the transition effect soon to make it easier to flip between hooks to see the difference, but that is for the next release.
