Looking for hook recommendations to get ready for winter silvers on commercials. I use Tubertini 808 for expanders and like them, and was using Middy 6313s for caster/maggot last winter but didnt have much confidence in them as seemed to lose a few skimmers/roach off the hook. What do you guys use?

Guru F1 and for those really cold hard days, Gamakatsu Green, a lovely sharp and lightweight hook - I only tie them to 0.06 and 0.08.

Deffo the Newish Preston S-FLB hooks.

I gave all my B911 hooks away after trying these last winter!
Ridiculously sharp hooks that don't blunt!
Had 100lb bags of Ide last winter using them.

Generally use hooks to nylon but guess the hooks are the same so anyway I generally go with kamasan B911s, drennan silverfish maggot or drennan silverfish pellet.

I used B911's for ages, but just tried the Guru F1's, and think they're real good at the minute.
