Fly Tying Hooks (Basic Hook Terminology for the Fly Tier and Fly Fisher)

The hook drawing above, for the beginner, is important should you take up fly tying.

If you do start tying, you will pay attention to all the parts of the hook as they relate to each fly pattern or recipe. (That’s OK, I have a pricey, new raincoat too. My original one gave up the ghost after 18 years)
