GETTING THEM OFF THE HOOK


GETTING THEM OFF THE HOOK

We often hear fellows say that they have trouble in taking fish off the hook on account of sharp fins; or that they won’t take their families on a fishing picnic because wifey and the kids keep dad on the jump unhooking their catch and give him no chance to fish. When going home time comes, father has nothing to show and the family have a fine time laughing at him. Father laughs along at his lack of a string, but his face hurts with every smile, and the next time he goes alone. In order to dispose of this trouble and still be able to take the family along, buy a box of ringed hooks in your favorite size when you are stocking up for the season. Instead of gut snell, use remnants of discarded line 6 or 8 inches long.

Gather the family around the table some night after supper and proceed to tie one of these short leaders to each hook. When you go fishing tie your sinker on the end of the line and 8 or 10 inches above it make a plain knot, as shown in the diagram. Take one of your prepared hooks and tie it to the line above this knot with a plain bow. If more hooks are wanted, do the same thing with them above the first hook. The knot on the line prevents the bow- knot from slipping down and the harder the fish may pull on the hook the more the bow-knot will tighten.

When you have landed a fish and find he has swallowed the hook, catch hold of your line above the hooks with one hand and with the other pull on the end of the bow and your fish drops into the basket. Then tie on another hook and bait up. Do not bother about taking out the hooks until you get home, by which time you will be cutting up the fish anyhow and the hooks will be easy to get out. By this method mother, father and the kiddies can all have a good time and everyone can take care of his or her own line.
