Sharp hooks?? in Beginning Carping Posted January 6, 2018 8 hours ago, Savayman said: The trend towards ‘ultra’ sharp hook points in Europe is focused on one hook for one fish. I seriously doubt we need to go quite that far over here. Quality Carp hooks out of the packet are sharp enough in my opinion but still need the point constantly checked & restored from time to time. I fish mostly for one fish s trip if I’m lucky I will get two but rarely my best day on those places are 3 and that’s only happened once.
