Are special hooks necessary for fly tying?

I want to tie my own flies but the dry fly hooks are really expensive. Do i really need to buy those hooks or can i use standard hooks?

You can get away with ordinary hooks, but I'd only do it in a pinch and only for certain flies. You don't want to tie flies with regular fishing hooks all the time. Fly fishing hooks are sort of expensive, but if you consider the cost of buying flies, you're coming out ahead.

Fly fishing hooks are different from ordinary hooks in several ways. First, their shape is different. Most of them, especially dry fly hooks, have straight, flat shanks. This enables you to easily place them in your vise and tie on your materials. It's not as easy as it may seem to substitute an ordinary hook. The vise has trouble hanging onto regular hooks and the tying is hard to get started. Any sort of baitholder barbs also get in the way. Fly fishing hook eyes are also bent or not bent, depending on the intended application.

Second, there is weight. Fly fishing hooks are made with extra heavy and extra light wire, according to what you want to use them for. Dry fly hooks, for example, can be very light, which will help you present and fish the flies the way their supposed to work. However, they are still as strong as an ordinary hook in the same size, and that's one reason they're more spendy -- superior materials. Ordinary hooks for a dry fly will likely swamp, tip over, etc.

Finally, there is length. Most fly patterns are tied onto hooks with shanks that are longer than ordinary hooks. A 2X long #12 hook, for example, has a shank that is as long as a #10 hook. These extra long and extra short hook shanks allow accurate reproduction of fly patterns. Again, you could try tying with ordinary hooks, but just try using a regular hook for a pattern that calls for a 3X long or a 2X short hook -- your flies will look and act funky.

So, you can try tying flies on ordinary fish hooks and for certain patterns it might work. However, if I were you I'd splurge on the fly fishing hooks, especially for dry flies. You will experience much less frustration. Also, it's hard to get ordinary hooks in sizes much smaller than 14, so if you want to tie gnats and small midges, you're limited to fly fishing hooks anyhow. Once you have a good inventory of hooks you won't be spending too much. I'm always surprised how long a pack of 50 hooks lasts. Plus, don't forget they ARE reusable. As you get better at casting and knot tying, you'll find that you can use the same hook over and over. When your fly gets chewed up by fish, just take it home, remove the materials, sharpen the barb, and tie it again.
