    Its a Cox & Rawle , Scratching Match Hook (SCR35) 10 pieces for £2-50.
    Itís very similar to the Ahrex Traditional shrimp (NS 156).

    I agree, really nice hook and very nice fly pattern. Where do you buy the hooks? I cant seem to find the scr35....

    I bought the hooks from a local tackle shop at Seaton ,Devon. He does sell on the internet if you give him a ring. Iím surprised they donít come up on ďgoogleĒ.
    They are highly rated on the shore fishing circuit.
    Ill post some pictures later.
