Got to be the Tubertini series 2 or the 2T for general work glad to see it's still about after all these years found some Ignesti series 1 & 2 as I was looking thought the box the other day the series 1 was a great B/Worm hook for caster work the old kamasan B560's still got three boxes of those [:D] also found some Gamakatsu 6315's that survived great for B/punch.

tubertini series 2 for silvers (small baits), series 18 for perch and skimmers etc (bigger baits).

For small fish, I would use a Tubertini 1m or Kamasan B590.
I've never got on with B511's, too springy and last time I tried, they all had rough spades and cut through the hooklengths.

B520s for me, same as B511s but with a microbarb. My favourite silverfish hook and then anything heavier is a Drennan Wide Gape

For squatts I don't think you can beat the Fox MP1 that used to be the Image IM-1.

For the "bits" i always use a kamasan B590 but finding them is getting harder and harder. For general size cut fish the tubertini 2 or 2t gets a second from me[:T]

For years as far I can remember,I've been using the 511 in winter and 611 in summer for the canals.But the last couple years,when the going is hard,I use the PR30 and PR35,depends on what bait I'm using [:T]

Quite right about B511 hooks cutting the line, I threw mine out years ago.

Only one hook for me as stated above Tubertini series 2 (by the way never liked the 2T series)

i have had nothing but trouble with the mp1's in size 22, snapping up the shank, snapping on the bend etc but in 24's they are perfect along with the old pr31's. for maggots etc all i use is b511's and pr30's :D

any recomendations for a hemp hook??

Gamakatsu Green, great for bloodworm, squatt,pinkie and maggot, if you require slightly stronger hook Gamakatsu black is the one.
Cheers

'B520s for me, same as B511s but with a microbarb' - totally different hooks. Not even close in shape/wire etc and BOTH have microbarbs.

B611 for the Bigger fish.
