I prune when picking blackcurrants...works for me Bluebaron.
I aim to remove old stems....right to the ground. I also take out fhe fruited stems....you can cut such a stem and take to a bench to sit and pick the fruit.
you want to keep your bushes producing new stems.....old wood will produce little or no fruit.
after pruning...mine done....I tickle in fish blood and bone and water well.
no, keep your smaller stems intact...these are exactly what you want
