Forgot to say why I suggested them. They carry Eagle Claw 1350 light wire jig hooks which I use for my crappie jigs. Only place I can consistently find them. I buy 1000 at a time which, with shipping, comes to around 4 cents a hook.
Anyway, the 1350 is also a hook you won't find on Eagle Claw's web site or any catalogue I know of. It is a special order (I would guess the 1857 will be a special order hook as well) and Simmons is the only place I have found that, so far, always carries it.
I emailed Eagle Claw a while back and asked them how many I would have to order to get a better price directly from them. They said I would have to order 100,000. So, since I don't have that kind of money laying around, I buy them from Simmons.
If they don't have the 1857's, they might be able to "hook" you up with them elsewhere. Who knows?
Good luck and good fishin'
