I haven't found one hook manufacturer that fit all of what I want in a style/shape of hook. Here are the brands of hooks that I've found to stay sharp, not bend out, and have the shape and fit the bill for what I like and how I tie. Partridge, Hends, Daiichi, Gamakatsu, and Fulling Mill are what I like to use, each of these manufactures have their own "special" shaped hooks.
Honestly, you need to give more information than you have because the answer can be and is as broad as your question. Are you looking to tie nymphs, wetfly/soft hackles, dries, big or little streamers, caddis pupae, scuds, big foam terrestrials, emergers? I think you may get more answers if you tighten the area of your question.
