John Downs also collected these two, fine older Oceanic fish hooks with their fiber lines. The top smaller composite hook comes from Samoa while the bottom example comes from the Marshall Islands. These date to the early 20th century or before. The Marshall hook is 4 7/8" (36.3 cm) in length while the Samoan example is 2" (5 cm) in length. sold
