A HOOK FISH CAN'T SWALLOW
A HOOK THEY CANíT SWALLOW
By E. CATTERTON
How many of you have had trouble in removing your hook from the mouth of a fish after you have caught him, simply because he had swallowed the hook too deeply? Now if you will get a small piece of wire and twist it tightly around the shank of swivel had to be enlarged to fit the screw shank, but I finally got a tight joint. After forcing this into the body of the swivel a little way I managed to flatten the bead out a little. Then a drop of solder made it fast. I tested it to thirty pounds pull (five more than any of my fish lines will stand), and it showed no signs of coming loose. When the hooks had been put back on the swivel and the whole business fastened to the bait I tried it out again. This time I hooked six out of seven strikes in two days. Five of these were landed, the sixth shook loose. None of the hooks showed the least sign of being twisted.
