HOOK BEAD SIZING
When matching bead size to hook size, many tiers will go up and/or down a size depending on if they want more or less weight, but also if they want a "long" vs "short" tapering body. A larger bead on a smaller hook will provide more weight but a short body taper. We sat down and looked at bead vs hook size for the Trout Legend Jig, Fulling Mill Jig, and Dohiku Jig hooks. Here is a nice general sizing reference below. Choose the first hook size if in doubt (3mm/14).
Bead Size - Hook Size
4.0mm - 8, 10
3.5mm - 10, 12
3.0mm - 14, 16
2.5mm - 16, 18
2.0mm - 18
Here's a nice sizing chart from Dohiku:
