Here is a traitor!
I thought I had weeded out all the soft hooks from a bad batch I bought a decade ago. I used to love these arrow pointed barbless hooks but now my confidence in them is at an all time low. This one cost Henry and I an encounter with a magnificent grayling this evening. Sturdy's Fancy was the right pattern, but I'd chosen the wrong hook.
Oh well, never mind! A fresh fly on a stronger hook might get us one of the other handsome grayling Henry...
Nowt as big as that first fish on the first cast that easily straightened out my bent little traitor though!
