Absolute noob. in Beginner's Corner Posted August 14, 2015 · Report reply The kit I got came with 8 and 10 sized wet dry and nymph hooks, I picked up 8 and 10 curved caddis hooks as well as size 8 2xl streamer hooks. I got them that large because I wanted to learn the techniques before I tried it on something small like a 16 or 18. Most likely I'll be hooking into smallish rainbows and smallmouth, but I do hope to go after some larges and steelhead in the near future. My rod is labelled as a 4/5/6,so I assume that means if I swap the spool for one wound with 4wt it'll be OK, if less responsive than a pure 4wt...?
