    Without listing loads of sizes etc, aim to get the hook point out about a third of the way down the lure. Just buy some size 1, 2/0, and 4/0 to get you started

    I'm with Mark here - 1/3 of the way down is a good rule of thum. I match hook size maily to quarry; You can rig big SP's with small hooks for Wrasse for instance, and if Bass are chasing small fry, then small SP's with bigger hooks. As long as the hook doesn't impede the action of the SP, it's OK by me.

    Even better, just nick a selection off Richie next time you see him.

    There's so much variation between patterns and manufacturers when it comes to sizes (even hooks from the same manufacturer) that a variety is usually the best option, e.g. I have some Matzuos and a 3/0 in one pattern is the same size as a 5/0 in another.
