Tiemco Hook Reference Chart

I tie most of my flies using Tiemco hooks. Over the years, have found these to be the most consistent regarding quality of the eye (smooth and free from burrs), very nice sharp points and available in pretty much every configuration I need for my Trout Food arsenal.  I have used the Partridge 10XL Streamer Hook for tying display quality traditional Streamers, but find these to be awfully expensive for everyday fishing flies.  All of the recipes call out a Tiemco style hook and hopefully the following chart will be helpful if you choose to use a hook from a different manufacturer.
