Publishers Description

Hooks are the most elemental and important tool in catching fish - predating 'lures', they form the foundation of fishing. This work is the most comprehensive study of hooks (including spring-loaded and mechanical hooks), harnesses and bait-holders ever published. Mr. Kieny takes the reader on an eye-opening, chronological walk through history; a walk that is as much about the inventors as their products. Hundreds of patented examples are individually profiled, discussed and valued. Each is photographed, presented with its original patent image, and assigned a "findability-factor."

Detailed background, historical and introductory sections arm the reader with rich past and current perspectives on this emerging collectibles area. Other sections feature hundreds of photographs and descriptions covering both general and company-specific collections, store and salesman displays, country-specific foreign examples and an exciting show 'n tell area. The breadth and diversity of the hook/harness area is unequalled in any other tackle collectibles area. Representing over 15 years of active research, this book is a must read for anyone interested in fishing history or tackle collecting.

Mr. Kieny, author, noted hook/harness historian and tackle collector, has been a member of the National Fishing Lures Collecting Club for nearly 20 years. Jeff is a passionate lifetime fisherman and enjoys fishing with antique fishing lures and tackle. Graduating from the University of Illinois, Jeff was previously an executive for a large multi-national firm. Now semi-retired, Jeff and his wife Glee live in Missouri, south of Kansas City.
