Choose the hook in addition to the hook shape, but also pay attention to the quality of the steel bar, too brittle too soft are not good. A good hook should be strong, tough and sharp. Strong is strong. The hook is too thin in use, easy to deform, in case of big fish, the hook is pulled straight to run fish. The thickness of the hook can be judged by intuition and feel. Whether the hook is sharp is also very important, the hook is sharp, the fish in eating bait, as long as the angler gently move the pole, the hook can be hooked.
Whether the hook is sharp has a simple test method: put a piece of cotton cloth flat on the table, put a hook casually on the cloth, and then pull the side of the cloth with both hands, the sharp hook can hook up the cloth. In addition, when fishing friends buy back some hooks, you might as well take a few for destructive test: with a sharp nose pliers grip the hook handle, hook tip stabbed into the wood to see. A pull on the broken steel is too brittle, a pull on the straight steel is too soft, can not be used, caught the big fish, caught the grass stone, if found that the hook some deformation, it should be abandoned, do not be too late to regret.
