Default Re: Valuable Lesson Learned (i.e. sharpen those hooks!)

Last summer I was having a very good day, then all of a sudden I missed 5 or 6 in a row. I checked the hook and it failed the fingernail test miserably. Switched to a new fly of the same pattern and continued my great day. Next stop was the fly shop (okay internet site) and ordered a couple hones. Now I never leave home without it.
