It's been quite some time since I posted a cache of Ebay finds. This week there are tons of great items to put you bids in on. First up is one of my favourite hooks to tie streamers on, the Mustad 3097 B hook. This lot is for a box of 100 in size 4. The bid starts at $50 for these, but I would expect to see them end up close to $100. I like these hooks because they closely resemble the antique Alcock 1810 hooks that were used by Carrie Stevens for her iconic Rangeley Streamers. The "B" designation means these hooks are built from heavier wire than the "A" hooks, which can be a little bendy for long streamers. With good quality streamer hooks becoming more scarce, this is a great chance to pick up a nice size for presentation flies. But, if you are looking to get your hands on some authentic Allcock hooks, you can check out this listing - Allcock 1810 8xl #6.

The hooks are from Streamers 365 tyer Bob Petti, who is known for his laser crisp streamer eyes and meticulous hairwing classics. You'll also be pleased to know that Bob has put up a selection of other hooks including some Mustad 94720, Mustad 3907 A and Edgar Sealey 1762.B hooks.

Sam Kenney of classicflies45 has a selection of flies and hooks on auction right now. Sam ties some stunning classic patterns, and has on offer his Black Ghost.

One last streamer to note is an original pattern from streamer tyer Alan Emery. His Shipwreck Smelt pattern has a few hours left on auction. It's a sweet little smelt pattern with lots of layered color and appeal for passing piscivores.

… I have a small favor to ask.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
