The New Tunca Expert from FlyScene
By Jérémy on 24.03.2015 in Fly tying , Gears , Rodtrip news
The 2015 trout season just started for us Belgians and even though I had all winter to tie a new stack of flies, during these days I tend to go in overdrive.
Do I have what it takes in my flieboxes?
After re-tying the ones that worked well last seasons opening, and dumping the ‘boxfillers’, one often seems to have heaps of new ideas just before seasons kick-off.
And what could possibly be better for improved patterns than checking out some brand new hooks? Even more hooks! Vice on fire!
Let’s take a look at the new Tunca Expert by Flyscene. I had the chance to get my hands on three different models in particular:
These shiny black hooks all come barbless, just as every flyfishing hook should be in my opinion.
All three models are sold in bags of 25, sizes ranging from 8 to 16 for the TE 90 and TE 120, and 10 to 18 for the TE 15. Given the fair price of € 3.50 per bag, you get a lot of quality for little money.
I’ve been using the Tunca Expert series for several seasons now, and they’ve never let me down. Feel free to check out my earlier reviews on these series:
So, for all you guys and girls whose vice is slowly warming up: good luck, and don’t forget to have an early night before the opening day of the season!
