Not really but i seem to loose loads of seatrout on trebbles anyway when they run at you after taking. The singles seem to go straight through the jaw and out the other side so hard to loose them if the hook gets a good hold.Has hook up to take ratio altered for you.
They look decent, big eye to rig. plenty of movement when the fish is hooked, paired with a braided line and a good solid hook set, should bag plentyThats the ones ive been using. Also fitted some of the mustad kaju ones to a joblot of old tobies etc i bought.

Quite like them with tube flys at times aswel when theres weed or leaves in the water. Not hooked a fish with one on the fly yet though as i stuck to owner trebles on tubes late last season as they were allready in the fly box.They look decent, big eye to rig. plenty of movement when the fish is hooked, paired with a braided line and a good solid hook set, should bag plenty
Owner hooks are top qualityok, that creates a problem as carp hooks usually don’t go bigger than size 2.
A few suggestions from saltwater fly patterns.
Gamakatsu SL12; superb hook maybe a bit long in the shank ?
Ahrex do similar patterns (270 and 280).
Owner SSW the straight eye version. That would probably work.
gamakatsu Gorilla Light. fantastic hook but might be too heavy in the wire. Not available in U.K. as far as I know. Quite small for size.
Tiemco 600SP. Good hook but expensive. Maybe a bit long in shank for you.
Grip hooks also do some suitable patterns but they are hard to find in U.K. these days.
Lots of standard saltwater O’Shaunessy (sp) patterns available but probably not quite right for what you want.
Basically what you want is a saltwater ‘live bait’ hook. ‘U.K. hooks’ have a couple of possibilities and ‘Veals mail order‘ might have some too. Also check out saltwater ‘crab’ hooks.
Hope this helps.
