"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly." -- Theodore Roosevelt

Well, you don't see that every day. I love them, but alas I could never use them. My fishing prowess is so magnificent that most of the fish I catch could never get one of those in it's mouth.

 

For example, I caught these two one after the other:

I think everyone is taking the term "fishing hook" way too literally. These could also be "fishing hook-like objects" that would sell pretty well to the body-piercing crowd for jewelry!

Just think how cool one of those would look through Lady Gaga's eyebrow, or belly button, or (insert preferred body part location)........

“So I'm lightin' out for the territory, ahead of the scared and the weak and the mean spirited, because Aunt Sally is fixin’ to adopt me and civilize me, and I can't stand it. I've been there before.”

The only bad experience is the one from which you learn nothing.

So I finally had a chance to try out the one with the sapphire.
Used a fat earthworm, I found digging out potatos for dinner, for bait.
This is what I cought with literally the first cast.

Perca fluviatilis, ate it as soon as I got home and totally forgot to measure it, but I recon it was about 30 cm, jaws to start of the fin.

Wow, Enchanted fish-hook indeed. There are pro fishermen out there who would pay the moon and the stars for one of those.

Man I love those!

Sent via phone in my pocket with the same fingers I use to sip whiskey.

 

Overkill is underrated.
