Replacing trebles with singles - hook recommendations

Post by OldTaff »

I have been given some Fox Rage Slick Stick 40SR lures (40mm, 2g) which I wish to use for perch. I am more comfortable with singles than trebles and would like to swap what is currently on them.

They look about a size 16 so I’m guessing a 12 single should be equivalent but could use some advice on the preferred in line eye hooks that experienced lure anglers use.

When you replace treble hooks then you tend to use bigger singles

The size 1 of these is what I use on most of my small lures
