Innsmouth Fishhook (Circa 1919)

Description

An old rusty Innsmouth fishhook with 5 barbed "tentacle" hooks. It's posed over a 1920s ivory and iron hook to show scale.

Innsmouth produced numerous types of odd hooks for the fishing aficionado/collector and the iron "Octo" series were interesting as they inherently acted as weighted sinkers.

After the raid on Innsmouth, these have grown in value and rarity. A curious part of fishing ephemera.

Made of Super Sculpey, aged to look rusty. I based the rusty color off of the real 1920s era fishhook it's posed upon.
