Whatever size wire you have should be fine. If all you have is really small stuff, you can build the body up with thread a bit. If all you have is a little bigger, then don't use as much thread. Dry fly hooks are going to be much lighter than nymph hooks, so if you use them, make sure to add a little more weight to the fly with some lead.
