Baz,
You might try the following link http://www.lakelandflytying.com/SearchResult.aspx?CategoryID=166 search down for TMC 9300 which might be what you're looking for. Not buzzer hooks per se but pretty sure they'll do the job  :wink:

Hi Baz,

I usually use a drennan shrimp hook, but I've found that Kamasan B100 grub hooks and B110 grubber hooks work extremely well

Baz,

I use the Kamasan B160s for small buzzers.  They only go to size 16 but these are the equivalent of a size 20.  Either that or just tie short on a standard buzzer hook.  The other option is the TMC 200R - great hooks for all nymphs and buzzers and they go down to #22.  I have landed a 6lb+ rainbow on a #22 of these hooks (PTN)

Nae in montrose I'm afraid.

Try Fishtec, they have Kamasan hooks at reasonable prices - 5 per 100.

Tiemco TMC 2487, great little buzzer style hook goes down to a 24.
try lakeland flytying.
the TMC 2488 is lovely too, slightly different shape, depends what you like.

Tiemco make good strong hooks even in very small sizes.

Tiemco hooks?

I noticed lakeland only sell in 100's

If you want them in 25's try www.fly-fishing-tackle.co.uk

I haven't used them before but the site seems ok.
