Category — Spring & Lever Hooks
At the last Phillips sale I was surprised to see the appearance of a spring loaded hook. This particular one was Swedish and I first came across this hook in the early 1970’s when I was doing my arctic warfare training in Norway. The idea was to bait the hook with a small baitfish, lower it into an ice hole and wait for a large pike to take the offering. Thus providing a meal, that was the theory.
During the last year or so I have come across other spring loaded hooks and decided to do a little bit of digging to find what was available to the researcher.
