Fish Hook is Also a Gun, They Won’t Get Away Now

by Conner Flynn

Fishermen are always talking about the one that got away. Clearly, that’s because they aren’t using the right hook. See this one? There’s a tiny hole in the bottom of the shaft. When a fish gets caught and yanks on the hook, the consequences are deadly. It discharges a 4mm centerfire cartridge and, if all goes well, shoots the fish.


Sure, shooting fish is cheating – and possibly against some sort of laws – but would you rather waste a whole day and catch nothing? This isn’t a new gadget and you can’t buy it at your local sporting good store. These guns were actually produced in the late Nineteenth and early Twentieth Centuries. I just thought it was cool and had to share it. I’m kind of surprised that no one has made a modern version though.

If you get your hands on one, it is not a good idea to use it though. This is certainly not safe and has accident written all over it. Getting one of these caught on your finger has far worse consequences than your typical fish hook.
