Default How Offten Do you Check Sharpen Your Hooks?

How often do you check, sharpen your hooks?
I check them often, especially when they are new, or have been sitting for a long time.
Dull hooks can cost you a fish of a lifetime.

Definitely important and often gets over looked. A little file and a little time can go a long way!

I check after every time I catch or get snagged before baiting up. I always have some kind of stone or file with me.

never use the same hook for more than a day. replace trebles on crankbaits, give away worm hooks/jig heads
