RE:Circle Hooks - make your own?

There was a good article in one of the SWFF magazines about bending/making your own circle hooks.I started to try this using Mustad's for my yak hair big eyed baitfish flies but then stopped.

My concern is that if I'm using a set of pliers and my bare hand to bend the hook to shape, will it staighten out with a big fish? Also, would the strtength of the hook be compromised by the bending so that it could possibly break?
