Fishing Hooks

Have just finished off a couple more 'Primitive' fishing hooks, the hook bodies are made from Ash and the point is a thorn from a hedge up the lane, the whipping has been done with jute twine, ie garden string from the local horticultural shop, the one on the right with the white flax whipping i made the other day.

I went a bit wrong with the larger one as i didn't carve the main body to quite the right shape and this has impacted on the whipping, as it's not as tight and even as it should be, i might take it apart and do it again, but there again, i thinking i could just make another one from scratch, it's not like it takes a long time to do and i also quite like the 'open weave' effect.
