FC Woods Expert Lure Detachable Hook Ad
This FC Woods Expert Lure Detachable Hook Ad comes to us from January 1907 Shields Magazine.
Messrs FC Woods & Co Alliance Ohio manufacturers of the Expert wooden minnows have placed on the market a new hook. It is double and is instantly detachable without the use of tools or loosening any of the parts.
This hook will not scratch or mar the finish on the minnow yet it hangs perfectly free and loose as hooks on a bait of this kind must hang to bring good results. The guard prevents the points of the hook from touching the body of minnow and precludes all fouling or tangling of the hooks.
When in use this double detachable hook hangs close to and along the side of the minnow with both points outward always in position to receive the strike and has a free movement in all directions. This is a decided advantage over the treble hook which has only one point outward the other two lying against the body of the minnow. The double hook when in action lying close to the body of the minnow and being partially protected by the guard is not liable to catch weeds or snags.
The double hooks are interchangeable with treble hooks.
All No I and No 2 Expert minnows will be mounted with the double hook unless otherwise ordered No 5 and No 6 minnows will be mounted with detachable treble hooks only. In writing for catalog please say you saw the minnows mentioned in Shields Magazine.
