Which Hooks for Floating Baits (Fen Drains)

Really looking forward to giving it a go for the Rudd on our drains. The lilies are growing nicely, so will be well developed by the time the new season opens.

As I will by using floating bait ( flake mainly) tactics, I was wondering whether the hook-weight makes much difference? If successful, I shall need to get the hooked fish away from the lilies fairly quickly, so perhaps something a bit heavier than fine-wire, such as Silverfish Match? I am looking to use Reflo Power 0.15 as hook length.

What's your thoughts please?
