I currently use Gamakatsu ringed live bait hooks sized #4 - 4/0 which I fished liked circle hooks......

I'm thinking of trying the ringed Charlie Brown circle hooks but they are kinda expensive.....

What size is the most commonly used?

Absolutely love the Charlie Brown ringed circle hooks. Stealthier than the Mutu or Super Mutu. Hand forged very strong. No off-set almost always hooks in the corner of the jaw. I carry size 2 through 4/0 but... All I ever seem to use is 2/0!

1/0-2/0 is all you would need for our sardines ... I’d use a larger hook if flylining a mackerel

My Charlie Brown hook order came the other day while I was at Yosemite on a fire assignment so I was excited to get home and check them out....

Here's what a $150 worth of Charlie Brown made in Japan tuna hooks looks like...

They're bigger than I thought they'd be and are bigger than the Gamakatsu ringed live bait hooks I like to use
