Just reading Dennis Moss above book for 2nd time and he has a few pages on the hooks opening and he advises using medium wire hooks for dry flys as opposed to fine wire so if I were to use B175's are these sufficient or am I over doing it ? If so what is he suggesting to use ?

Lovely read by the way - very interesting especially as I've fished Corrib and hope to return next year.

He maybe talking about the B400 series, which are a shade lighter in wire gauge than the b175's but heavier than b170's.
