Specification of Reissued Letters Patent. Reissued Nov, 17, 1914 749,962. Application for reissue filed May 18, 1914.

Serial No. 839,439.

To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, RICHARD A. LAMBERT, a citizen of the United States, residing at Tacoma, in the county of Pierce and State of Washington, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Artificial Fish- Bait, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to artificial fish bait wherein bait, hook, and sinker are made integral, that is to say, combined in a -umtary structure.

It is a well known fact that eyes are excellent fish bait.

The present invention has for its ob]ect to provide a hook with artificial eyes used as bait to attract the fish, the artificial eyes. being combined with the sinker and hook in one device in such away as to eliminate the necessity of carrying the several parts separately. p V.

In the accompanying drawings Illustrating the invention, in the several figures of which like parts are similarly designated, Figure 1 is a front elevation; Fig. 2 is a side elevation showing also the addition of feathers, and Fig. 3 is a cross-section taken d1- rectly through the center of the eyes.

Referring more particularly to the drawings, 1 indicates a fish hook; 2 is a lead sinker cast around the hook 1 so as to form a unitary part thereof, the said sinker being provided with fiat surfaces, as shown at 2, against which artificial eyes 3 which are made of any suitable material, such as glass, celluloid or the like are secured by means of a wire or bar 4. As shown, this wire or bar is provided at each end with beads 5 adapt ed to be inserted in recesses formed in the backs ofthe eyes 3. The upper end of the hook is adapted, as by the loop 6, to receivethe end of a fishing line in the usual manner. Around the point of the hook I preferabl'y arrange a tuft of feathers 7, adapted to conceal the point of the hook and also to serve as an additional lure for the fish.

It is to be understood that the artificial eyes 3 may be made of any suitable material and in sizes to suit the users fancy.

While in the foregoing I have shown and idly connected to described the preferred embodiment of my invention, I wish it to be understood that I may change the specific arrangement of parts without in any way departing from the spirit and scope of my invention.

Having thus fully described my invention,

' Artificial fish-bait, comprising ;a fish} hook, and a .pair of w artificial eyes having an .iattached w re by which the eyes are rigshank of the fish-hook.

4. Artificial fish-bait, comprising a fishhook, a pair of. lustrous bodies, and a wire connecting these bodies and rigidly and fixedly applied to the shank of the hook.

5. Artificial fish-bait, comprising a" fishhook,.a.pair of lustrous lobes, a wire rigidly connecting the lobes with one another and also with the hook, and a sinker permanently and rigidly applied to the hook and the wire at the junction of the hook and vwire.

' 6. Artificial fish-bait, comprising a fishhook, artificial eyes, opposite ends fixed in the backs of said eyes, and a sinker cast around the shank of the 'hook and embracing said wire and serving 'to fix the wire to the shank and thereby rigidly locate the eyes on the hook.

7. As an article of manufacture, a fishhook, a sinker cast around the shank of said hook, eyes having recesses. and a bar having heads formed thereon and engaging the recesses in the eyes, said bar arranged in the said sinker adjacent to the shank.

In testimonv whereof I affix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
