Depending on the size you want to tie... Have you considere a salmon bomber dry fly hook like the Partridge CS42?
If you don't need large hooks there are plenty thin wire hooks in sizes from as small as you want them to about size 4 and 2. I have used hooks like Partridge's Captain Hamilton hooks, which are dry fly hooks available in sizes up to 6.
Hope this helps

I tie a lot of small muddlers. I just use any size dry fly hook in a 2X-4X long. I also bought a bunch of small streamer hooks that were being discontinued. The gap is a bit small for my liking but the length and weight are ideal. _________________ Bob Abrams

Thanks a lot gents. I did fine nymph ,hooks Daiichi 1720 size 8,10. They work good. I put a bit more deer hair at the head. I found them on my bench under some tying stuff. I think I had better clean the bench up so I can find stuff from now on.
