Antique Copper Halibut Hook

A copper "U" shaped composite halibut hook which duplicated the traditional halibut hooks of the Indians in Northern Washington and Vancouver Island with a sharpened spike attached with wrapped cotton cordage and an attached copper ring assembly for attaching a line from the float to the hook.  This piece was probably made for trade with the Indians to duplicate their traditional hook assemblies.
