Can anyone suggest a good strong hook ( 18 to 20 size range ) preferably barbless but would consider barbed , for tying caenis spinners?

I don't have a model / type for you but try and get the widest gape possible.
A lot of hooks in that size bracket have too small a gape - specially if you are fishing for decent fish.

The strongest, barbless dry fly hook I use is the Tiemco 2499SP-BL . . .


It's available down to size 18.

Ken Sawada Midge hooks

Probably strongest tiniest dry fly hook available in the market. Second best would be the Varivas midge one
