WISH I HAD THOUGHT OF IT!
Did you ever see a new, innovative product or way of doing something that made you stop and think, “WOW, why didn’t I think of this?” As a lifelong outdoors person, I have occasionally come across such products. One was a mirror blind several years ago that a company called Ghost Blind introduced me to. I actually used and tested one of the prototypes. The blinds are lightweight and easy to pack into the woods have become very popular and revolutionized the way many of us hunt from the ground. Once set up, the surface on the outside of the blind is mirrors that reflect the exact image of what’s in front of the blind. The perfect camouflage! Several years ago, I took my largest whitetail buck with a bow at 19 yards while sitting behind my Ghost Blind.
I recently received a few packets of hooks from Trapper Tackle that caused me to scratch my head and again, ask myself that same question, “NOW, WHY DIDN’T I THINK OF THIS!” The advantage of this new design were blatantly obvious. Both the standard and treble hooks were designed with a very sharp point which would insure a quick hookset and once the barb threads into the fish’s lip, it was virtually impossible for it to become dislodged because of the ninety degree bends of the hook. Thus the name Trapper Tackle (www.trappertackle.com).The fish is literally ‘trapped’ within the slot built into the hook.
