A pair of split ring pliers is very helpful. The link is for a Rapala brand, but you can pick up a cheap, perfectly functional pair locally. Wal-Mart even has them in the "fishing" section.

I'm not a big split ring fan - one more thing in the chain that can fail.
I cut and bend the eyes of the hooks (or buy the pre cut hooks)

The best tool for cutting em is the small 13" bolt cutters you can pick up cheap at Lowes or Home Depot.
