Has any one use these flyliner hooks with a leader? Just want to know if they are good to use out of package or should I just tie the main line or top shot straight to the ringed hook.
Thanks in advance.

After you take the first one out untangling the the rest is a pain. I was given some similar for fresh water and I ended up cutting the hooks off to tie my own as needed

    whichever has the longest bunk
    I bought some when they first came out, and like Mike said they were an expensive solution to a non-existent problem for me. I think the maker is aiming at the new fisherman, it seems to be a salt water version of the packs of fresh water hooks with short leaders that you buy so you can put worms and salmon eggs on and get the kids in the water.

    Never used the pre tied ones, but i use to use the "ringed" flyliner hooks until one day i whipped a big dines off my hook and the weight and torque of the whipping action sling shotted the "ring" right into the back of my stick, the impact blew out my guide and cracked the blank. So that was the last time i used the ringed flyliners. I still use the owner flyliner hooks but not the ringed version, but thats just my fault for being lazy and not taking the bait off by hand.

    I have used these pre-rigged models and have not had any luck. I have used ringed flyliner hooks by owner tied to my own flourocarbon leader and have gotten bit. This has just been my own personal experience.

    If tying fluoro to mono use a seaguar knot, doesn't get any easier. Loop loop loop done...

    I usually keep a pack in my back pocket to get back in the water quickly during a hot bite if I get cut off or have to cut my way out of a tangle. At the start of the trip I tie 4 or 5 feet of fluro to my spectra but when you have to get back in the water quickly when all of your outfits are screwed up they save a couple of minutes that might be very important. That being said there is no way I would pay 12 bucks for a pack of five. I usually find them at the fishing tackle swapmeets for $4 a pack and even that seems like a lot to pay for a hook and 3 feet of fluro.

    I didn't buy these. I got them for free when I subscribed to Fish Taco Chronicles mag. I have size 2 - 2/0 owner hooks in flyliner, mutu, gorilla and offshore. I can tie the braid to Flouro and mono to flouro. Thanks for the help guys.
