Hi everyone,

I was interested by the attached photo of some shimano squid fishing tools.

I guess the metal tools are used to kill squid but I am only guessing.

I guess the brush is used to clean ink or slime off squid jigs. I think this would be very useful. Often the squid ink is very gluggy and hard to remove from the squid jig hooks. I guess an old tooth brush would work just as well.

The photo was taken from the following webpage:

Thats interesting - i have always thought that maybe squid might shy away if there is excess gunk left on a jag from the previous squid - may need to add a toothbrush to my tackle box......... :o

SA - the land of the bigger fish. The fish on the east, measure the least, but if you head west, you'll be bringing in the best!!
