A guide to the size of a Fishing Hook
Here is a simple overview of the sizes of Fishing Hooks
The smaller the hook the higher the number
12, 10, 8, 6, 4, 2, 1
BUT when you are searching for the LARGER HOOKS
The larger the hook the higher the number
1/0, 2/0, 3/0, 4/0, 5/0, 6/0, 7/0, 8/0, 9/0, 10/0
notice the /0 after the numbers. It is important to include this when you ask a seller for this size fishing hook.
Because if you ordered 100 size 8 hooks and saw they are about 10 times smaller than a size 8/0 you will almost fall over in shock.
size 10 hook is very small size 10/0 hook is very large.
