You don't often see these coveted Allcock Heritage BG3 Streamer Hooks for sale. Luckily for streamer tyers, there is a set of size #4 an #2 hooks up for grabs on Ebay this week. The hooks were distributed by Castle Arms a few years back and have been sold out for several years. These Allcock B3G Heritage hooks were made in Redditch, England much like the originals. While the original hooks came in a wide range of sizes, lengths and wire thickness, the Heritage Allcock hooks are available in the size #2 and #4 as we have here. The hooks are a bit heavier than the Gaelic Supreme Mike Martinek Rangeley Streamer hooks, but make for a nice hook to tie a display streamer on. They have a nice Sproat bend, and 2.5" shanks. When I was preparing the hook reference section for the site back in 2011, it was easier to find the older Allcock hooks than the limited production Heritage hooks from Castle Arms. I've since given away most of the hooks I had, but still have a couple I will someday tie a set of flies on.

Seller Mike Houle has a nice offering of carded flies in his Ebay store. Included are flies by Warren Duncan, George Fletcher, Wallace Doak, Wendell Folkins and this nice specimen from Streamers 365 contributor Selene Dumaine. Selene's streamer is called "Christmas Delight" and is a beautifully tied example of Selene's work and a fine piece for any collector. Selene is known for her thoughtful custom streamers and for keeping traditions alive such as the enviable skill of tying Rangeley Streamers "in-hand" as it was done by Mrs.Carrie Stevens.

… I have a small favor to ask.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
