RE:Sharpening Hooks?

Terry,

I used to use a flat file and sharpen the top of the hook from the point back on both sides so there would be a ridge/ edge on the top.

Last year I receved a file as a gift from LL Bean that is 2 rods held together by the handle. I run it from the behind the point forward. Easy & fast, I can show you the needle sized holes in my fingers to attest to it's effectiveness.
