Has anybody used the New Loop Up Eye Doubles yet for their flies & if so what are your opinions on them ?

I was thinking of buying these for a change but wanted to see if anyone had used them first.

Thanks in advance.

Lurig, :)

Is the Up Eyes on the Loops more pronounced than the Patriots as the eye on the Patriots can be just above level on some.

Does anyone have a decent photo of these ?
The one on the Loop website is less than helpful.
And that’s me being polite 😉

That’s a good point Brian; I couldn’t find a decent photograph of them either on the Internet.
If anyone has a photograph of them it would be great, thanks.

Hi.

I received my Loop Up Eye Hooks & have just tied these flies up with them just now on the Size 12 & Craig is right as they are quite similar to the Patriots & I would say that they are quite short on the shank.
They look very well made hooks & very consistent from what I can see so I will see how I get on with them.

The brazing looks to be very consistent and fairly smooth. Thats a nice set of flies to set them off too (y)

I thought that these hooks were pretty consistent too; but you never know from packet to packet as we have all seen before, although I would have liked the shank just a bit longer for this particular fly.
