Any recommendations for a good strong hook for use with peelers?

Agree with Roy on sakuma hooks. I used kamasan and mustard in the past too. Size wise anything from 3/0 to 5/0 winking

I have always found Mustard Uptide Viking 4/0 to be quite good. They are a lot thinner than the Mustard O'Shaunessy hooks of the same size and just as strong.

Any of the Varivas hooks will be excellent for what you want but I have a little question? Are you fishing from the shore into a dirty mark?? If so you may want to consider not going for the strongest hook you can find but rather try a good quality aberdeen style so if you hook a snag at least you might stand a chance of bending the hook out.

If you stick with a pulley rig for smoothounds they really will help keeping you out of the snags winking

IMHO
Pulleys are only any good when you have a fish on. By their design they require the load of a fish to draw the lead upwards above the fish. At all other times unless fitted with some kind of rotten bottom system they may be worse for hooks snagging than some other rigs as the empty hooks will hang down to the same level as the lead when retrieved.

most hound rigs along the solent are pulley rigs.i think not through the case of snags ,but ease of fishing when a fish is on.yes when the weight of a hound or any fish is on pulls the weight up.and away from the hound so no tangles etc ,harming the hound.l
on a lw mark i fish,i use the old method of ledgering ,lead sliding up the main line.and trace line flowing freely.
