What is the best way to sharpen your hooks ? What type of sharpener do you use .
I don't ever sharpen my hooks....always lose 'em before I need to. :lol:
I got one of the small Bear Paw hook sharpeners from Catfish Connection, and I just use that. I have had it for over a year and I still think it is a great little piece of rock. It normally doesnt take me too much to sharpen my hooks; maybe 5 ot 6 strokes per side at the most.
I found it to be a difficult to sharpen circle hooks with my traditional file so I have taken up using the dremel with a cone shaped stone.
I love the "hook hone" hook sharpener. It only cost me 1.40 from Catfish Connection.
Thanks guys ,appriciate the info .
Alabama red rock also known as a red wet stone not very fancy but very effective.
I use a small diamond whetstone or my spyderco sharpmaker.
I have carried a small whetstone with my tackle for years.peewee-williams
I have a small sharpening stone. When I am fishing daylight and waiting on bites it is a great way to pass the time.
i stoled a bunch of my wife's emery boards she does her nails with. they do a quick touch up on hooks, probably would work to clean up a sparkplug in an emergency.
as an added bonus, i can do my nails, while i'm waiting for a bite. keeping several colors of pearlesent polish in the boat lets me color co-ordinate my sinkers to my outfit. adding shad scales gives the most darling effect.
:lol: there's got to be something about you that's just not right...:lol:
Chew on this...was reading ur post and Mrs.catfishhunter2u seen what i was reading and her response is "her mother taught her to sharpen cloth diaper pins and or straight pins etc. was just to simply run it through ur hair as if u are combing it". she says worked for her . some things are easier done in simple ways i guess....:wink:
never had hooks last that long
Form my jugs I use a small file and a pair of small vice grip pliers. I always keep a small oil stone in my tackle box for my 'rod and reel' hooks.
Your right about that ole man, but I would like to sneek up and get some pictures of that stuff, and him doing his work, sure would make a nice post.
small file, takes time but they r sharp:crazy:
Mike, your post reminded me of something i haven't thought of in years. my grandma used to make her own pin cushions and she stuffed them with hair. she always had sharp needles and pins.
thanks for the memories!!
Thanks for the response all , alot of good info .
