  1. What do you consider a quality hook? I'm guess you mean a super heavy wire hook because Gamakatsu, Owner, Mustad all make 30 degree hooks.

They all do the same thing. The Boggs limits you to how long a spinner you can make due to the rotating shaft that you have to insert the wire into to twist. Not really and issue for me because the majority of my inl

  6. if your looking for the yamamoto #221 color then you use del-mart nightcrawler for the cininamon it matchs almost 100% the fleck will change the color to match so when you add black and purple it will look exact. #221 is the #1 color I use on jigs and senkos and this was the match I have found to be the best.
