I guess size depends on the riversize and watersize in the river. At least in my expirience. From size 12 and up to the size you manage cast. Personally i use most my doubles between 8 and 4. About brand there is so many to choose. I use mostly Mustad and Salar but its more about what my localshop delivers....
All the best

As well as the "Usual suspects" the Ahrex ranges are way up there, none of their hooks are cheap, but the quality is probably better than most others.
