' JOHN VBURYTIKOUNTZ, or JUNCTION, TEXAS.

' FISHING-ROD HANDLE.

1 Application filed June 13, 1922. Serial No. 568,033.

T 0 all who? it may concern. Be it knownthat I, JoHN B. KoUNrz, citizen of the United States, residing at Junction, inthe county of Kimbleand State of Texas, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Fishing-Rod Handles, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to an improved fishing rod handle and seeks, as one ofits principal objects, to provide a device of this character embodying a weighing scale so that the scale will always be conveniently at hand for weighing fish when caught.

The invention has as a further object to provide a handle wherein the scale will be normally housed within the handle and protected by a cover.

And the invention has as a still further object to provide a handle wherein the presence of the scale thereon will not prove unhandy nor interfere with the normal manipulation of the handle.

Other and incidental objects will appear hereinafter.

In the drawing:

Figure 1 is a perspective view showing a fishing rod handle embodying the present invention,

Figure 2 is a vertical sectional view through the handle,

Figure 3 is a detail sectional view at right angles to Figure 2, and

Figure 4 is a detail perspective view of the supporting pin for the scale.

In forming my improved handle, I employ a tubular core which may be of wood or other approved material. Fitting over the core at its upper end is a jacket 11 provided with a reel seat 12, and surrounding the jacket is a collar 13 slidable along the jacket for clamping a reel upon the seat, the jacket being screwed or otherwise secured upon the core. Snugly fitting in the upper end of the jacket is a plug 14 retained by a flange 15 upon the jacket and sunk into said plug is an axially disposed socket sleeve 16 adapted to removably accommodate the first section of a rod, as conventionally illustrated at 17 Formed on the jacket at its lower end is an annular flange 18 and fitting at its upper end beneath said flange is a grip 19 surrounding the core. This grip may be of cork or other approved material, and fitting over the butt end of the core is a metal cap 20 flared to embrace the adjacent end of the grip. As best shown in Figure 2,the cap is provided at its lower end with a slot 21 and hinged upon said cap is a cover 22. This cover is formed to snugly fit over the outer end of the cap 20 and mounted within the cap is a spring catch 23 accommodated in a slot 24 in the core and provided at its free end with a stud 25 extending freely through the wall of the cap to engage in a suitable opening in the cover for securing the cover in closed position. Rising from the catch through the cap is a stud 26 which may be depressed for releasing the catch.

Formed in the inner wall of the core 10 at its upper end is, as shown in detail in Figure 3, a pair of oppositely disposed slots 27 and removably engaging at its ends in said slots is a tubular cross pin 28. As shown in detail in Figure 4, this cross pin is preferably rolled from a piece of sheet metal having its ends brought into overlapping relation, and struck from the outer overlapping end margin of the metal is a pair of upwardly curved opposed stop lugs 29. Inserted at one end through a suitable opening in the jacket, through the core and through said cross pin, is a locking rod 30 threaded at its opposite end through the wall of the jacket for securing said pin against displacement, and engaging at its upper end over the pin, between the stop lugs 29, is a spring 31. As best shown in Figure 2, the spring is provided at its upper terminal with an eye 32 to receive the pin therethrough and, as particularly brought out in Figiue 3, the stop lugs will serve to limit the movement of the eye along the pin and center the s ring within the core. At its lower end, the spring is provided with a hook 33 and engaged at its upper end with said hook is a scale bar 34 extending freely through the slot 21 in the cap 20. Near its upper end the bar is provided with an opening to removably receive the. hook 33 while at its lower end said bar is provided with a piercing hook 35 disposed exteriorly of the cap but normally housed by the cover 22. Thus, this cover will serve to prevent the hands of the fisherman from being caught on the hook 35 so that the handle may be freely manipulated without hindrance. Furthermore, the cover will serve to completely conceal the scale bar so that the presence of the scale upon the handle will not ordinarily be observable. As suggested in the drawing, the scale bar is provided with appropriate calibrations and, as will now be at once understood in view of the foregoing, should it be desired to weigh a fish, the cover 22 may be swung open when the piercing hook 35, may, as suggested in Figure 1, be engaged in the mouth of the fish. Accordingly, by then grasping the handle, the fish may be lifted, when the scale bar will register the weight thereof. This done, the fish may be removed from the scale bar and the cover closed until the next catch.

Having thus described the invention, what is claimed as new is:

1. A fishing rod handle includingahollow core, a cross pin mounted thereon and pro- 'vided with opposed stop lugs on its upper side, a spring suspended on the pin between said lugs and depending within the core, and a scale bar carried by said spring.

2. A fishing rod handle comprising a 1101- low core, a grip-retaining jacket on said core, across pin seated at its ends in the upper end of the core and consisting of a blank rolled in tubular form with its side edges overlapping and spaced lugs struck up from the upper side edge midway its ends, a locking rod inserted through the pin with its ends engaged in the walls of the core and the jacket whereby to connect the core and the jacketand secure the pin against displacement, a spring suspended on the pin between the lugs, and a scale bar carried by the spring.

In testimony whereof I affix my signature.

JOHN BURT KOUNTZ. a 8.
