Looking recommendations for above. Don't use doubles often, mainly singles. But need to replace the loop big mouth doubles I have, as they seem to be rubbish. Bent 2 tonight on grilse, which were lost. Have had a few fish on them before with no apparent problems. Think it must depend on where the hook sits!

Big Mouth doubles bend at the sight of a rock. I gave up on them. Patriot tube doubles or Nordic doubles - or Mustad of if you can find them - Salar tube doubles.

For hooks upto size 8 use partridge heavy nymph doubles if you can get them. You can tye flies on them as well. A nice tough wee hook . Scierra tube doubles are pretty good and won’t break the bank
