    As a guide, I use these hooks to tie squirmey worms and eggs on. Solid, sharp hook. Keep up the great work

    great for tungsten jigs

    Published by Unknown on 1st Mar 2015

    This is a solid hook with a sharp point. It's wide gap allows sufficient space to glue on a tungsten bead head, and it's short length give the fish a small profile. Best value I've found.

    Hook quality not consistent

    Published by Unknown on 3rd Feb 2015

    Previously bought N304 size 8 and were nice hooks. Recently purchased size 6 and the hooks were thinner wire and smaller gape to #8 hooks. Contacted company and they indicated the #6 was old stock. These lack of consistency in between sizes makes it difficult to determine which hooks I may get. No offer to resend me the new stock of #6 hooks.

    Update: Hello, That seems odd that my guys would not send replacement's. I make that a goal to always do what we can do to make things right. I'll have a talk with them. In the mean time. Please email me at and Ill take care of it for you. Also, we have updated this hook series. This hook is our 3rd most popular selling hook. I would like to have you get back into our hooks. Thank you - Justin

    Nice hook but not quite there

    Published by Peter Pauwels on 31st Jan 2015

    In testing this hook it was 85% as strong as a Tiemco 2488H. I love the profile and the straight eye. The price is right. However if you are on big water with big fish I have found that the fish will get on a current seam and sit there shaking their head and straighten this hook. Regretfully it can not replace the 2488H that is over priced. If anyone finds a solution to this problem let me know, Tiemcos are too expensive.

    Update: Hi Peter, Yes, this hook is not as heavy as the 2488H. However, we now have a hook being released soon that is. If you email me at we can put you on a list to send samples to. Thank you - Justin

    Good egg hook

    Published by Unknown on 26th Jan 2015

    I got these because the E601 hook that I like for egg patterns was out of stock. These turned out to be an excellent alternative for egg patterns. Sharp and strong. I really like the color of the finish on these hooks, more of a grey than bronze. I found that they run a tad on the small side, the size 12 was similar to a size 10 E601.

    size 16 a little off

    Published by Unknown on 12th Jul 2014

    for a general purpose scud hook I have enjoyed working with this hook. For all sizes except 16 the hook aspects/proportions are easy to work with. However I have observed with 16s that the hook eye seems a little large for hook size, the hook eye isn't always closed or tilted to either side. I've been able to work with this nonetheless and still feel that it is the best value out there.

    Outstanding quality

    Published by Anthony Grasso on 10th May 2014

    I have purchased nearly a thousand hooks from Allen, and I have to say that I'm never disappointed with the quality. The N304 works great for the caddisfly larvae and pupae patterns I tie and fish on a regular basis, staying sharp trout after countless trout.
