|Staying Sharp with Dr. Slick Diamond Hook Files.|
When it comes
to hooking fish, nothing beats quick penetration provided by an extremely
sharp point! Keeping your hooks sharp is easy if you have the right tools.
Straight to the point, dull hooks, like dull fishermen, land few fish. And we
know you are sharper than that.
So here are the best tools for improving and maintaining your hook points.
|Dr. Slick Diamond Hook
Files are made from diamond grit embedded in stainless steel. They
need no maintenance and seem impervious to salt water. They sharpen
by removing metal and work equally well when stroked in any
direction. An easily accessible hook sharpener is one of the most
important tools in your arsenal. Sharp hooks land a much higher
percentage of fish than do dull ones. A hook point is a cutting
edge. All cutting edges become dull with use. Anglers who
regularly inspect and maintain their hook points land the most
fish. As a matter of efficiency, the sharpening tool must be easy
and quick to use. It must also be able to perform a variety of
tasks and be able to reach all surfaces of the hook point. These
diamond hones are the best hook sharpening tools we have found.
Each size has flat and grooved abrasive surfaces and a different
texture on each side. The 4" Sharpener has fine and medium grit and
the 6" Sharpener has medium and heavy grit. The 4" Sharpener is
best suited for sharpening hook sizes #20 to #1. The 6" Sharpener
is best suited for sharpening hook sizes #4 to #10/0.
These diamond hones will also sharpen knives and scissors and perform many other useful tasks.
