Re: Hook sharpening
In all honesty, buying new hooks is the best way.
If you are dead set on doing it though, get a diamond hone and a fingernail BUFFER, not a file, a buffer. The sort of thing people use to make their nails shiny looking.
Lay the hook flat against the file, and lightly make three passes along the top, right, and left side, all smooth and in the same direction. This will sharpen the hook.
The buffer is to polish the hook. Corrosion will attack microscopic burrs in the metal first, and the smoother the metal is, the longer it will stay sharp. RZ-50 is a corrosion inhibiter, and spraying it on the hook after will help it keep also.
Really though, the only hooks I sharpen are jig or spinnerbait hooks. You are so much better off to replace a crankbait hook. I wholeheartedly recommend Gamakatsu EWG trebles as the best for crankbait replacement.
MAKE IT FUNKY ON THE ONE.
