The suggestion is apreciated John; I am sure it is a very effective device.

Per sharpening at the vise: I use TMC, Daichi, Gami, or other chemically sharpened hooks so they never require initial sharpening. Costs a lot more, but the I can't stand the quality control problems of other brands. The cross-sectional profile of the wire is odd, the eyes aren't closed well, the barbs are gigantic (and I remove them all) and the points are dull.

I'll tie on anything for bluefish flies, but for stripers, steelhead, bonefish, salmon, trout, etc. I am primarily a Tiemco man.
