Any suggestions? Something like the Drennan Silver fish hair riggers, but finer, is what I'm looking for?

The Guru LWG are pretty light and fine. Not sure if they are finer than the Drennan SF. I have mic'd them both up for thickness so I will check when I get home.

Ok so they mic'd up as follows (size 18)
Drennan silverfish eyed - 0.32
Guru LWG eyed - 0.35
Preston PR36 0.36
B911 eyed - 0.38
So the Drennan silverfish is lighter by some way. I don' t know of any lighter. I have used them by the way and they are very good, not had any straighten even on carp.

I'm guessing you need an eyed hook for a knotless-knot and hair, but you can save about 25% of the hook's weight by using a spade.

As a rough guide, fine gauge eyed hook is about the same weight as a medium gauge spade.

I use Kamasan crystal b510 barbless (whipping a hair on if required) when I feel I need lightest hook possible.

Thanks, lads. Sorry for the late acknowledgement, I've been away for a few days.
