Prompted by Hooks thread I thought it would be useful to try and create some sort of Hook Equivalents chart, for future reference,
I've already put quite a few hours work into this table Confused (looking at existing charts and loads of websites) but its by no means
complete. This is what I have got so far: (Its only based it on the most popular of the Kamasan hooks, but this can be altered to
suit at a later date if needed)



There'll almost certainly be some errors in amongst all that and also I know there are a lot of omissions too.

This table can be built upon to be as thorough or as basic as everyone wants, if you know of equivalents which can be added to the
table and would like to add them, put them below and I'll add them. Same goes if you spot any errors.

Paul.

Hi paul, Drennan make seriously good hooks, but I would have to go through the range to find the equivelents for your very good table. But well done on your efforts for this subject. Laughing Wink

G'day from Sydney Australia. I was reading this forum & came across this thread. I reckon this hook equivalent chart is a top class piece of work & the author, Paul, should be congratulated.
I have just joined this forum so this is my first post & if all the threads are as informative as this one it won't be my last post.
Great work Paul, thanks.
Camo Max.

Paul, a big thanks for that- I'm new to tying and this is a great wee chart.

Up until now I'd been using a "hooks" page form a catalogue Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Thanks again, it's appreciated.
