Bob,

It depends on what species I'm targeting. For stripers I use from size 1 to 3/0 with 2/0 being the average. For big LA Marsh redfish, I'd us 3/0; for white bass, smallies and spots I'd use size 4 to 2 and so on. If I really want a strong jig hook on a small fly I'd use the Umpqua H506 - heavy duty; but it only comes as large as size 1 but it will hold a big tarpon.

Dan
