MY PHILOSOPHY IS
small hooks catch big and small fish
big hooks normally only catch big fish

Duff advice for this particular match - you'll be fishing for dogfish so you want reasonable size hooks - white ragworm if you can get it and sandeels- and make sure you can cast straight

Nope I'm not saying that at all Rabbi because nobody actually mentioned specific size of hooks other than to say use small hooks-

who mentioned 2/0's? I cant see that size mentionaed anywhere apart fromyour reply to my post.

it depends on what your definition of small hooks are- what I would say to you is that 2/0's are generally considered to be big hooks by shore match anglers. 2/0's would be fine for targetting doggies- personally I'd use size 1 Kamasans for doggies.
