I watched 10 pages of ways to sharpen a hook on YouTube. Have you looked at all the ways? Most will shorten the life of the hook.
Just make sure you get a Diamond grade sharpener with the hook grove. It does the best job for me. I stroke the hook and not the sharpener. Lightly drag the hook backwards away from the point of the hook from the under side where the barb is. Two strokes and it is as sharp as it is going to get; unless someone has messed with it. Then it may take a couple of strokes on each side in the same direction.
The only video that I saw that even came close to sharpening the hook from the under side, was a guy that dulled the hook exactly the way most were sharpening the hook. He then took a Dremel tool from the under side, in the bend of the hook with the little sander wheel spinning away from the point making a quick touch and it was razor sharp.
