Gamakatsu Carp Specialist R hook notes

[Just notes that I can return to later for reference and study.]

Bought sizes 2, 4 and 6 from Bass Pro Shops.  Best price I could find at $4.29 per pack of 10.  Silly sharp hooks, and they feel basically unbreakable.

The hook gap is big; shank is short.  The #2 hook is so "tall" that I was thinking it might tip over without big DB eyes.  So I've been using the size "large" DB eyes and they keep it upright (along with splayed out bunny, legs, etc for stability).  I think for general use the #4 is the best all around.  The 2 hook is pretty damn big.  The 6 probably has no place in Lake Michigan fly box but would be great for patterns used in MN.  I did a lot of smaller bunny leeches using the 4 hook.

#2 hook with size large DB eyes.  An iteration of the FYI fly that we used back in 2013.
