    I have and use a Dr. Slick for my larger hooks if and when needed here. Tiny dry fly hooks? I don't ever recall sharpening one. I tied my own and tried to check each hook prior to dressing it. If ever I thought I ticked a backcast I would examine my point and if it felt dinged or I could see it peened over I just changed the fly.

    I know that doesn't sound interesting but it worked for me for a long time.

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.

    I have one like this
    It actually gets a great deal of use.....as a zipper pull on my vest

    I like the ceramic Tiemvo hone for trout size wet flies.
