Wayne Driskill Miniature Firearms featured this inconspicuous-looking fish hook, which doubles as a gun.
We’ve all heard stories about a grizzled old fisherman who wrestled with The Big One, a massive fish of legend on par with the Loch Ness monster or a great white shark that shoots lasers. Inevitably, the old-timer’s story ends with the fish getting away (of course, otherwise he’d have to prove just how big the fish actually was).
Evidently invented by a fisherman who wasn’t willing to spend his life in regret over the one that got away, this gun/fishhook will make the most relentless fish that the seven seas have to offer go belly-up. Whenever a fish bites into the hook and yanks, the hook discharges a 4mm round right into the fish’s skull. Bang! Dead fish.
These hooks, which were manufactured in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, are 4 9/16-inches long and 2 3/4-inches wide. It operates with a 4mm centerfire German Ubungsmunition 20, or 4mm centerfire Flobert. Unfortunately, fish-hating gun owners will have to wait for the next fishhook firearm to come up on the market, as this has already been sold. What a bummer!
On the bright side, though, there’s nothing stopping you from using conventional firearms to do your fishing. Going out onto a lake with a firearm may not be as easy as shooting fish in a barrel, but with something like an M16 it’ll be pretty darn close.
