Abstract

See full text

This fishing invention applies a kinetic energy-storing device along a fishing line to provide additional resistance to short-term stress applied to the line when the fish is tugging. The kinetic energy-storing device reduces occurrences of fishing line breakage, allows fishermen to use a lighter fishing line, and creates a means for fishing lures to snap themselves off of undersea objects. This invention, when secured between the fishing line and lure, allows fishermen to change lures without the need to retie the lure. Ultimately, this invention makes it more difficult for a fish to escape once hooked.
