Found this instrument while going through a box of junk for a garage sale. Nobody knew what it was & I have undertaken to find out. I'm thinking maybe something to do with carpet making or weaving etc. It has an eye like a bag needle at one end , a hook at the other and two finger holes in the middle. The instrument is 21cm in length & has 'Made in England' stamped on it. Looking forward to your thoughts.

Do you think it has been made that way or has someone got a long needle and twisted it to shape for some reason?

My money is on it being an early type fish disgorger.

It removes an embedded hook deep in a fish’s mouth.

Thanks for your thoughts Derek & Rufzgutz. On closer inspection there are some hammer bruises where the loops are which would indicate something along Derek's thoughts & Rufz's is also a possibility in this area. I'm thinking probably a long bag needle reshaped. Will keep enquiring

In a previous life I worked on a charter boat and we had them similar to the one below so I guess Rufz’s just may be on the ball
