Re: What hook sizes to start with?
Save this link, it will save you a lot of time looking at recipes. I tend to tie on Dai-Riki or umpqua and a lot of recipes use tiemco hooks as the deFacto. Eventually you'll get the hang of a scud hook, Emerger , nymph ,dry etc etc but this helped me when starting.

I can't comment as to what you should buy because I tend to only fish here in Colorado.
I use a ton of Dai Riki 135 in 14,18,20,22
Dai Riki 125 18,20,22
