THE USEFUL SAFETY PIN


THE USEFUL SAFETY PIN

We had pulled hard for about two miles to a rocky shore on Lake Winnepesaukee, N. H., where we knew there were bass. On getting to the grounds, I found the tip of my casting-rod broken by the fish tank resting on it (large zinc tank to keep fish alive in). You can imagine my feelings. Had come all that way to fish for one hour, 5 to 6. and back with p m. It was out of the question to go back for repairs, and, without tools. I felt rotten was just about to go back to camp and give up for the day when I saw my old raincoat (probably been there since last year). I took it to try and pry the wood from the agate guide tip to refit it. But it would not come out. Then the Kink came to life. Why not tie the pin on the tip of the rod and use the round 1oop for a guide?

No sooner the thought than the deed. With an old rusty file, kept in the boat for sharpening hooks. I filed and broke off the clasp end and roughed up the sides of the pin. Placed it on tip of rod, loop close to end of tip. Broke off a couple of feet of line and bound on pin, tight. Threaded line through loop of pin, attached pork rind minnow and went to work, and, incident ally, got four bass from 1 pounds to 2 pounds and one pickerel of 44 pounds, and arrived back at camp at 7:10 with the best catch for that one day. The pin guide appeared good for many more trips, but I repaired my rod that evening, and the pin guide is hung up as a memento.
