MAKE YOUR REEL SELF-STRIKING

The following kink can be used quite successfully when still fishing. It is especially good when the rod is not held in the hand or when the anglers attention is perhaps attracted elsewhere at the moment the fish bites:

Fasten a rather stiff rubber band to the upper end of the rod grasp. It may be lashed in place, stretched over a peg as in the diagram, or fastened in any other way you desire. Whittle a small bit of wood to the right length so that it will act as a prop between the reel handle and the reel seat when the forward end of the handle is brought just slightly below the parallel with the reel seat.

Pass the line around back of this prop, stretch the rubber band from the rod grasp to the reel handle and the reel is locked. As soon as a fish takes the bait and straightens the line, he pulls out the small prop. The rubber band promptly jerks down the reel handle, causing the spool to wind in a few inches of line, just enough to set the hook. If the angler desires the fish to run with the bait for some distance before being snubbed (as when fishing with minnows, etc.), strip out the extra line in advance and let it lie in loose coils just back of the first guide.
