Upon purchasing the HookPoint it became clear that this was a well thought out and designed bit of kit.
It was developed and is now marketed and sold by Microvista Products Ltd where inventor Dr Andrew Worthington felt that there was a use for a pocket magnifying tool which enabled anglers on the bank to identify any issues with the sharpness of their hook point (a common problem that we are often not aware of until its too late). It was also developed to aid with other 'in situ' problems that we can sometimes encounter whilst out fishing.

The HookPoint has been recently reviewed in both 'The Trout & Salmon' and 'Fly Fishing & Fly Tying' magazines and if you happen to be attending the BFFI (British Fly Fair International) this coming weekend (18th/19th June) then you can check it out yourself at The Microvista Products Ltd stand and see what you think.
