He's got a brand new Fish hook in that lot. For that I'm f'ing jealous.

Yea, that's why I bid on the lot too but it got to a price point that made no sense just to get the one Fish hook.

Never used a hook. Threading job looked wrong to me. Hanging them on the bookshelf and pulling down, the girth hitch thing made a nice leverage point that I wouldn't want on the rock. Loops looked long. Poked 'em all through from the hook side and tied an overhand, but didn't bother shortening them yet. Figured the price was fair for 28 pieces.

Guess I'd best learn quickly.
