Hi just thought I would share what i have been told for those interested,designs along these lines and derivatives were based on fully functional gill hooks. The bait would be attached/ tied to the hook and when it was inhaled by the fish the fisherman would attempt to snag the fish by its gills there by transferring the weight of the fish to the thickest / strongest part of the hook rather than relying on a sharp point to pierce the lip/jaw.

Neat ae? Functionality , understanding of the species feeding habits , working within the parameters governed by the physical properties of the material being used and asthetic aspects all rolled into an item as common place as a fish hook :-)
