The Smallest Hook Currently In the World?

Hook with a ruler in millimeters.


An Olive Horse Hair Pupa Tied on This Hook.



          When it comes to hook gap this is the smallest hook that I have tied flies on. It fits inside a TMC 518 size #32. I just kind of stumbled over this hook that I never had seen before. Now I bought a stash of it because it's a really nice hook to keep up tying tiny flies. If there is some smaller hook available please let me know either in this blog or on my e-mail <meo@spray.se>. Until next post ...

I think I saw this on Small Fly Funk a while ago... wonder how he custom made those 42's. ?. was he only working with 518's? maybe if someone.. has a stash of 277 32's... modify the shank length, add a big eye, and de-barb. hmmmmm

Hi Swamp Yankee!

Thanks for your comments! The link was leading to really interesting flies and customizations of the TMC #32.

Kind regards,

I can't imagine a fly that small. I have trouble with a 16. 3

Hi Mark!

I can understand that! For me it has been an issue of getting used to it. It takes a while but now it works pretty well. Thanks for your comment!

Have fun fly tying and fly fishing,

Hi Satoshi Yamamoto!

Thanks for stopping by and reading! I use UNI-Thread Trico 17/0 that I use a marker to give it the color I want.

Have fun fly tying,
