I have just been taking the photgraphs for a tutorial of a Gammarus pattern I have been using this year, More details soon, but here's a little taster:

Lovely looking bug D'.

Do you like the Varivas hooks you have used?

I love the shape, but don't find them great hookers or very strong.

Smaller sizes such as <18 are good but the bigger ones seem to be a bit bendy!

I really like these hooks. They are a bit of a 'marmite' issue though - love or hate them. The prifile is great and whilst I have had a few issues with stregth with the earlier versions, my confidence has been restored.

I am less keen with them used with tungsten shell backs.I always feel the ballast is working against a solid hook up. But other than that, they are a firm favourite.
