"Why do you change the hooks and split rings on your lures?"
Before and after. A standard Yo-Zuri split ring from the belly treble of a Hydro Popper after a decent fish
Its a bit of a quandary, do you spend the money and time changing out your terminal tackle or do you risk losing a good fish? The answer this time was obvious, I should have upgraded the spit rings as well as the hooks. Well the fish escaped and I learned a lesson - be better prepared and avoid disappointment.
