    Cleaning the eye of a hook if it has an obstruction.

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

    What Ard said!

    I have one that's supposed to be used for jigs. It has a pin like that too for clearing paint out of the hook eye. Problem is it doesn't fit all sizes of hooks.

    I end up using the point of another hook most of the time!
    Remember, no one likes to be behind the big truck, but that's better than being under it!

    And here I thought it was to poke myself into awareness if I'm not paying close enough attention. Always learning something new...
