Weed Guard Hooks


Weed Guard Hooks

Many hooks have been designed for bass and for other surface feeding fish, with weed guards, to prevent the hook catching weeds and grass. Some of these are good and do their work well, but others are so constructed that they turn over quite often when the fish takes the bait and thus prevent the hook from catching. Some of the best kinds are shown in the illustration. It will be noted that they are all weighted; this is to make them ride point up.

Quite a novel idea is shown in the Doddridge Automatic Weedless hook, which is weedless only while being drawn forward, the tension of the line tripping the weed guards up to the point of the hook and the guards dropping down out of the way the instant the line is slacked.

There are also double hooks, made by forming hooks on both ends of a piece of wire and bending it in the middle. This form is not used much but nearly all artificial baits are furnished with one or more treble hooks, which are made by soldering a single and a double hook together so that it forms three hooks on the same shank, each standing out in a different direction from the shank. These are sometimes* used plain and sometimes covered with a bunch of feathers or deer hair, to conceal them and ward off weeds and grass.
