    Fly Tying: Irresistible Dry Fly (21:16)
    Tying a size 10 dry fly can always be challenging, yet here's a fun (and effective!) one to try. Featured in the video are D101BL dry fly hooks from Allen Fly Fishing (http://www.allenflyfishing.com/d101bl-standard-dry-fly-barbless/), which have begun to garner great reviews from tyers, including on that hook's website. I chose an Irresistible dry fly for this tutorial, which can be normally tied with characteristics similar to an Adams, though I chose a larger pattern which can represent many insects on the water. The tying of this dry fly includes a few intermediate techniques, but none that can't be mastered with a little practice. Thanks for viewing, and feel free to leave any comments on this page or email me:tcammisa@gmail.com

    1. Love this dry fly hook. Rating

      Posted by Gregg on 11th Aug 2017

      People complain about the shank length, comparable to the Dai Riki 305, an old favorite. Love this for beetles, but many other patterns. Stout but not heavy.

    2. Great Quality Hooks. Rating

      These hooks are perfect for mayfly imitations and my small terrestrial patterns.
      Great quality and very affordable.I highly recommend these hooks.

    3. first time and hooked Rating

      Posted by Phillip Ritter on 27th Jun 2017

      This was the first time I used the D101 dry fly hook but I love the bass hooks and nymph hooks, so I thought I'd give this a shot. I went up to Michigan to fish the Hex hatch at night and We did a lot of fly tying during the day. We also fished smaller stuff during the day so I needed a smaller dry fly hook. Enter the D101. I used these to tie up ISO's and brown drakes. They are a very strong yet light and floatable hook. They were very sharp and the geometry is perfect. I don't fish a lot or tie a lot of dries back home but when I do I will certainly come back to these as they have performed excellent.

      These hooks are sharp and the metal strength is comparable with the premium names of hooks. I have tied various types of dry flies with them and they with worked will during tying and when fishing

      I almost exclusively use Allen Hooks and beads. Best quality and best price out there.

      I was able to use this hook while tying flies with confidence and no concern with metal strength failure. Its sharpness and edge looks to be able to old its point . Good value for the price.

    7. Great product Great service. Rating

      This hook works perfectly for my woven wasp.

    8. D101 Short shank Rating

      Posted by Al Vignart on 2nd Jul 2015

      Due to its short shank I initially did not like the hook. A few weeks ago, however, I compared my D101 #12 shank length with those of TMC100 & Daiichi 1180 (both #14), and noticed they are identical!. Thus, I can now tie a #14 fly and benefit from the #12 wider gap of my D101s. And I don't mind the slightly heavier wire; my dries float.
