Fly Tying Hook Conversion Table

There are no exact standards for hooks. Seems like each major manufacturer makes up what works for them. If you are a fly tyer and try to tie flies using a pattern sheet, you may have to convert to the brand of hook that’s at your tying table.

There are lots of Fly Tying Hook Conversion Tables online. You may have a favorite. This is mine.
