Default I don't worry about oil on hard lures and its effect on fish.

Most of the time a fish has to eat the plug or risk missing a meal. In that case, it would take a helluva bad smell and lots of it to cause him not to strike. IMHO.

I slit open the split ring with a small pocketknife blade. I then start the old hook to come off, then immediately put the new hook behind it. Then as I push the new hook around to get it on, the old one also works off. Just one step to put on the new and take off the old. You'll get used to doing it quickly and without sticking yourself.

Split ring pliers work.

I just got really used to using a leatherman, I carry one 24/7, so I may as well use it!

Ok I believe it may be a myth; what it made of is still a secret (maybe fish oil, maybe not). But I have seen professional fishermen use it as an attractant and it works.
