Hello,

Im looking for some Mustad 3257b and 7970.

Sizes are 10-12.. 3257b 10-12.. 7970

I have some Mustad 94840 size 2 I would trade

The 92840 size 2 makes an unbelievable bomber.

Large gap perfect hook for skaters/drys.

If you would rather I purchase your hooks Im ok with that too.

Thanks for lookin.

Mustad 7970...

I think that the Mustad 7970 hooks came in sizes 1 to 8...don't recall ever seeing 10s or 12s in the past 50+ years of tying...

Wire diameter too large...

The hook gap on a 10 or 12 7970 would be quite small because of the 5x extra heavy wire used for this style of hook. The previous mention of Partridge "M" hooks is worth consideration. I have them up to 6/0, but I have only tied to 4/0 because of the gap restrictions here. I think they are about 3x extra heavy wire, and sparse patterns tied on them sink like rocks.
