DOUBLE HOOKS
Most fly shops don't have double hooks, but they should be able to order them or a quick search on the Internet will produce results. Double hooks have the same specifications as single hooks. The above double hook is a single wire with a brazed shank.

Treble Hook

TREBLE HOOKS
Treble hooks consist of three hooks and a single eye. You can find treble hooks at fishing supply stores. (Fly tying shops don't usually carry double or treble hooks because these hooks are not suited for catch and release principles.)

It can be difficult to tie a fly directly on a treble hook, because it is easy to snag the thread on the hook points. Treble hooks can be used with tube flies or with a Double Waddington Shank. Can also be tied as a trailer hook. Treble hooks are available in most sizes.


Waddington Shank

WADDINGTON SHANK
Waddington shanks are available in different lengths.

Hook manufactures are continuously changing styles. Some hooks have been taken out of production or renamed. Any reference to specific brands or model numbers are subject to change.
