Sharp hooks catch more pike

Look sharp chaps... If the weather's kept you off the bank, how about checking the hooks on your lures to up your chances of connecting with a fish or two next time you do get out..? There's a great guide to how to sharpen your hooks on Dave Lumb's blog here.

"If there is one thing you can buy which will increase your lure fishing success when using lures with large hooks it is a hook file," writes Dave.

"A few quid spent on one of these simple pieces of kit will put more pike in your net than any expensive lures or rods ever will."

It doesn't just hold true for lure fishing, either. Keep the hooks sharp on your bait fishing traces and you'll cut the number of takes you miss, or fish which seem to fall off as soon as you bend into them.
