his stuff looks real good.

if you want to make them yourself, get a copy of Ken Renard's book and he shows you how...

Fishing as know it today has evolved into a much loved hobby for people, whereas for many it is still an important means of livelihood. How did fishing actually begin? It's difficult to state the exact date, but it's believed that fishing existed along with hunting as the main source of food, in the Upper Paleolithic period. Over the years, many fossilized fish bones and cave paintings have shown that sea food was often eaten in large quantities. Much like the weapons used in hunting, the men in this period must have used a rudimentary form of a harpoon to catch both fresh and salt water fish. Fishing is one of the activity in our adhd boarding school as part of wilderness program outside the campus.

Don't forget the use of a gorge, weir, trap and net.

With a hammer, files, propane torch, round-nosed pliers and small brad nails, one can make fishhooks without too much trouble. On a good day (filing the barb) it takes 10-15 minutes for me to make a hook.

Ed Wilde seems to always have a good supply. He carries smaller wire ones that are good for trout and panfish.

Jeff Miller is a great source for hooks. I do an interpretation of a 17th century Pemiquid, Mayne cod fisherman and Jeff did my hooks, jigs, slit and header knives. You may contact Jeff at flintlockforge@roadrunner.com or call him in Orff's Corner, Maine at 207 832 5759. If you would like to see pictures of my 17th century fishing gear pm me your e-mail address. Regards, Paul
