(01. 43-40) 1 The present invention relates to new and use ful improvements in ?sh hooks for use particu larly with live minnows, sardines, et cetera, and has for one of its important objects to provide, in a manner as hereinafter set forth, a device of this character comprising novel means for 2 shaft 1, as at H), and formed to provide a keeper H in the form of a hook. The rod 9 terminates in a reversely bent pin l2 which is insertible through a gill and the mouth of the bait and engageable in the keeper l I. Adjacent its forward end, the shaft ‘I is looped at 13 through the eye 3 and wrapped. on itself, ?rmly retaining the bait without injuring same. as at M.

A ?sh hook of the character described com Referring now to the drawing in detail, it will prising a live bait holder formed from a single be seen that reference character I designates length of resilient wire and including a loop for generally a ?sh hook of suitable size and metal, connection with a ?shing line, a shaft extending said ?sh hook including a shank 2 having an eye 3 on one end. On the other end of the shank 2 is a hook 4. The ?sh hook I is ?rmly secured on one end portion of a live bait holder 5 in a manner to » from one end of the loop, a rod on the other end of the loop extending longitudinally on the shaft to an intermediate point, said rod being wrapped around the shaft at an intermediate point and formed to provide a keeper, said rod terminat ing in a reversed free end portion insertable project longitudinally therefrom. The live bait holder 5 is formed from a single length of suit- . through a gill and the mouth of a bait and en gageable in the keeper, a hook on one end of the able resilient wire which is bent at an intermedi ate point in a manner to provide, on the rear end of said holder, a loop 6 to which a fishing line (not shown) is to be connected. Extending from one end of the loop 6 is a shaft shaft and projecting longitudinally‘ therefrom, and a loop on said one end of the shaft pro jecting at substantially right angles to the hook, the last-named loop being for the reception of 1. The other end portion of the loop 5 is wrapped the bait and constituting means for retaining the around the shaft ‘I at 8 and merges into a rod hook adjacent one side of the tail ‘portion thereof. 9 which extends longitudinally along said shaft to an intermediate point thereon.
