Haha, nice, I also use the same size hook for Trout lol, hard for them to swallow, I'll run up to a 7/0 for bobber and eggs or plunking for Chinook lol, always a 7/0 with a Herring though (I know, off topic :))

7/0 bobber fishing. double 5/0 herring trolling

Gamakatsu #2 for the majority of winter fishing, frequently down to Gamakatsu #4 in low water. Occasionally I'll use Owners but see no tactical advantage to them. The last owners I bought, the eyelet's were not crimped all the way to the shank of the hook! Pissed me off and I haven't purchased any more!

I never use any hook larger than a #2 for steelhead unless I am actually springer fishing during the tail end of the winter run.
