I am tying trad summer steelhead flies with the current batch on Daiichi 2421 #4. Just grabbed some TMC 7999 #6 intended for smaller flies and these are slightly bigger than the size 4 Daiichi's and almost same as Daiichi #2's. Is this big difference due to a hook brand thing or did I get a mismarked package? Now I get to make another trip to town to the only big box store hoping they have the real size 6's in stock. Any help from experienced steelhead tiers is appreciated.
Thanks,
Moon

It sucks when that happens !!
Josh is right , differences between manufacturers . Both hooks styles you mentioned are 1X long so no need for vast differences .
Find a style you like and stick with it , then just add sizes to your inventory .
