AUTOMATIC MECHANICAL SPRING LOADED FISH HOOK TRAP LURE HARNESS FISHING BAIT Picture(s) and Description:
EXACT BARBLESS HOOK ON THE BOOK COVER! This is a rare factory barbless Sockdolager spring loaded fish hook called a Sockdolager or Yankee Doodle, patented in Brooklyn, NY by Job Johnson in 1847 in EX+ condition measuring 4.25 inches in length with 100% of the original japanned finish still present. This is a real beauty! I am selling this for my neighbor Bill Blauser, co-author of the book "Spring-Loaded Hooks, Traps, and Lures". This is in fact the exact hook pictured on the back cover of the book in the upper left hand corner, not one just like it, but the EXACT same barbless Sockdolager, making it not only a rare spring hook, but a unique one as well. A letter of authentification signed by Bill will be included for the winning bidder. NO RESERVE!! Should you have any questions about this hook or any other spring-loaded hooks, lures, or fish traps that Bill will be selling, preferrably by private sale, and not through E-bay, he may be contacted by phone at 412-373-8203 or by email through me. He asks "What are you looking for?" I SHIP FREE WORLDWIDE USPS FIRST CLASS SHIPPING. THIS HAS ALWAYS WORKED FOR ME IN THE PAST, BUT IF YOU WOULD LIKE A MORE SECURE METHOD OF SHIPPING, I WILL CHARGE EXACTING SHIPPING CHARGES FOR YOUR PREFERRED METHOD.
