For any saltwater fly fisher, the Keys and Gulf Coast regions are Florida's real Disneyworld! When tying flies for a trip to the Magic Kingdom, the classic pattern to master (don't worry, it's an easy one) is the Clouser Minnow. This elegantly simple bait fish imitation is silky smooth in the water and can be fished effectively in many situations, in both fresh and salt water. Tiemco's TMC 300 is an excellent choice for tying Clouser Minnows and other streamer patterns for saltwater fly fishing. If you're not headed to the saltwater flats, don't sweat it. This versatile fly tying hook from Tiemco will also work swimmingly in any of your favorite freshwater streamer patterns that require a longer and stronger hook shank.

From trout to tarpon, in freshwater or saltwater, for bass poppers or Micro Mayflies, we choose Tiemco hooks over the other competitor's best efforts. Teimco hooks are simply the best hooks we've ever clamped in our fly tying vises, and we think you'll agree.
Tiemco on the Tiemco SP Series
"In addition to the outstanding standard hook points, Tiemco introduces a new and innovative specialty point: The new Tiemco SP Series features a hollow curved point with triangulated edges that sharpen easily. The 'slow-tapered' point lowers the resistance of penetration, resulting in accelerated hook sets and better holding ability, especially in barbless versions.
Biologically speaking, when a hook pierces a fish's mouth in a flash, the wound will be constricted. The basal part of the point has an 'apron' on both sides. These tiny swellings will work as a barb to some degree. In larger sizes, they also help streamer flies track better in the water by functioning like the keel of a ship.
Tiemco SP hooks are available in a saltwater model, a streamer model, and in barbless designs for dries and nymphs."
