Griffin Hook and Hackle Gauge Fly Tying Tool Rotating Vise Stem Attachement
SKU 940-00508

Sometimes, it’s the little things that make all the difference. The folks at Griffin know fly tiers are constantly honing their craft. That’s why they collaborate with well-known fly tyers to create tools that are surprisingly affordable, yet effective. Griffin’s Hook and Hackle Gauge makes your fly tying experience easier, and it'll help your create outstanding flies. This handy gauge fits most vise stems. To determine hackle size, simply bend the hackle around the pin at the bottom of the gauge. The hackle will flare out and the tips will indicate on the curved graph the correct size hackle. To determine hook size simply place the hook on the hooks pictured on the gauge. This gauge will rotate freely on the vise stem so it may be swung out of the way when not in use. It will correctly identify size 4-22 hackles and 4-16 hook sizes.

    My Second One

    Posted by DLL on Mar 24th 2020

    In the field, I can't always tell what size a hook is by just looking. I took my first gauge off my vice and put it on my vest to help me with selecting the right sized fly hook.

    The gauge hook pictures are based on the Mustad 94840 dry fly hook. The images accurately duplicate the 94840 hooks I sized. No two hook manufactures make the dimensions of a hook exactly the same as another hook manufacture. The hooks I use are a different brand and the hook bend dimensions are slightly shallower than the 94840. After sizing several known sizes of my hooks I can select the desired hook size in the field.

    My desk is a little messy and I often mix hooks in the same container. I bought a second gauge for use with my vice to sort hooks. I use the actual hook for most of my hackle sizing. Though on occasion I do use the hackle gauge.
