Simply stunning Mark. Are all of these dressings Irish? Didn't come across them before but then again I didn't really go past Kelson and Pryce-Tannatt yet....

Keep them coming.

Really like the look of those wee hooks

Cheers,
Sebastian

Thanks Sebastian I think the Killarney Pet and Red Eye are typically Irish and I've seen versions of both of these by Malone so say no more. The Saghoug I think is from Fraser Sandeman's 'By hook & by crook' if not then I think he also wrote 'Angling travels in Norway'. I agree the proportions are quite nice on these hooks and they are blind eyes so the eyes haven't been cut off like in some re-worked hooks.
