Abstract

The Open Eye Hook is designed to make fishing faster and easier. The Open Eye Hook is the fishing hook that is designed with the channel gap that allows the fishing line to slip into the eyelet of the hook. The gap compresses the fishing line without any weakening of the strength of fishing line. Once the fishing line is inserted within the eyelet of the hook, the fishing line is locked within the eyelet.

  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • The Open Eye Hook relates to the fishing hook that allows the fishing line to attach to the fishing hook though the eyelet gap in the fishing hook without threading the eyelet or damaging the fishing line.
  • Prior to this invention, it has been proposed in Japanese Patent Number 2004-283020 to Watanabe, that the face of the shank be shaped into the annular state to prevent from cutting the fishing line when the fish is caught. This patent does not facilitate the attaching of the fishing line to the fishing hook FIG. 1 shows the annular shape (4) (5) (6) as it would appear if the eyelet was pulled back from the shank. This invention does not have the gap for the fishing line to pass through as shown in FIG. 2 where the eyelet end (5) press tight to the shank (2) and thus the fishing line (20) cannot pass in or out of the eyelet. The Open Eye Hook channel gap is designed to lock the fishing line inside the eyelet of the fishing hook without threading the eyelet of the fishing hook. Most important, this patent does not have a narrowing channel gap which does not lock the fishing inside the eye.
  • Japanese Patent Number 2009-268461 to Hamada, Litsey, is the fishing hook with the elongated eyelet extending down the shank. The channel gap created between the elongated eyelet and the shank is wide enough for the fishing line to pass through into the center of the eyelet. The channel gap is also wide enough to allow the fishing line to slip out. To prevent the fishing line from being dislodged from the fishing hook, the fishing line is wrapped tight around the elongated eyelet and shank closing the gap and creating the obstruction that prevents the fish line from slipping out of the fishing hook. The Open Eye Hook does not have the elongated eyelet. The Open Eye Hook is designed with the channel gap that locks the fishing line inside the eyelet without wrapping the fish line around the fishing hook. Most important, this patent has a straight gap which will not lock the fishing inside the eye without wrapping the fishing line around the shaft.
  • Linsey U.S. Pat. No. 2,138,702, is the fishing hook with the elongated eyelet extending down the shank. The channel gap created between the elongated eyelet and the shank is wide enough for the fishing line to pass through into the center of the eyelet. The channel gap is also wide enough to allow the fishing line to slip out. To prevent the fishing line from being dislodged from the fishing hook, the fishing line is wrapped tight around the elongated eyelet and shank closing the gap and creating the obstruction that prevents the fish line from slipping out of the fishing hook. The Open Eye Hook does not have the elongated eyelet. The Open Eye Hook is designed with the channel gap that locks the fishing line inside the eyelet without wrapping the fish line around the fishing hook. Most important, this patent has a straight gap which will not lock the fishing inside the eye without wrapping the fishing line around the shaft.
  • Patent Morrow 2004/0181944 is the fishing hook with the elongated eyelet extending down the shank. The channel gap created between the elongated eyelet and the shank is wide enough for the fishing line to pass through in to the center of the eyelet. The channel gap is also wide enough to allow the fishing line to slip out. To prevent the fishing line from being dislodged from the fishing hook, the fishing line is wrapped tight around the elongated eyelet and shank closing the gap and creating the obstruction that prevents the fish line from slipping out of the fishing hook. The Open Eye Hook does not have the elongated eyelet. The Open Eye Hook is designed with the channel gap that locks the fishing line inside the eyelet without wrapping the fish line around the fishing hook. Most important, this patent has a straight gap which will not lock the fishing inside the eye without wrapping the fishing line around the shaft.
  • BRIEF SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • The Open Eye Hood is a fishing hook that is constructed with a channel gap that gradually compresses the fishing line when being attached to the fishing hook and will not damage the fishing line integrity. Once the fishing line is pulled inside the eyelet through the channel gap, the fishing line resumes its original shape. The fishing line is locked within the eyelet due to the narrow exit channel gap with the fishing line resuming to its original sharp.
  • BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE SEVERAL VIEWS OF THE DRAWING(S)
  • FIG. 1. Is the side view of the construction of the Open Eye Hook showing the hook shank (1) the eyelet (2), the inlet gap (3), the exit gap (4) and the channel gap (6).
  • FIG. 2. Is the top view of the looped fishing line (6) prior to being pulled into the eyelet (2) through the channel gap (5).
  • FIG. 3. Is the side view of the fishing line (6) about to enter the inlet gap (3).
  • FIG. 4. Is the side view of the fishing line (6) being compressed through the outlet gap (4).
  • FIG. 5. Is the side view of the fishing line (6) in the eyelet (2) after resuming the fishing line's original diameter.
  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION
  • The Open Eye Hook is designed with the gap channel (5) between the fishing eyelet (2) and the fishing hook shank (1). The channel gap (5) is made up with the inlet gap (3) and the exit gap (4). The inlet gap (3) width varies equal to the diameter of the fishing line (6) being used. The exit gap (4) width is 005 cm to 0.03 cm smaller than the diameter of the fishing line (6) being used. The channel gap (5) allows the looped fishing line (6) to be gradually compressed while being pulled through the exit gap (4) without damaging the fishing line (6). Once the fishing line (6) has entered the center of the fishing hook eyelet (2), the fishing line (6) is locked into the eyelet (2) due the narrow exit gap (4) and the fishing line (6) resuming the fishing line's (6) original shape.

Claims (3)

1. A method for inserting a fishing line into an eye of a fish hook comprising: placing a fishing line against a shank portion of the fish hook; drawing the fishing line along the shank portion until encountering an eye of the fish hook at an end of the shank portion, the eye having an opening immediately proximate the shank portion, the opening of a width smaller than a diameter of the fishing line; and urging the line into the opening with force while holding the fish hook, until the fishing line deforms sufficiently to pop into the inner region of the eye.
2. The fish hook of claim 1 wherein the fixed width is a width less than the known diameter of a specific fishing line.
3. A fish hook, comprising: a point proximate a barb; a curved portion extending from the point and barb, following a curvilinear path through substantially 180 degrees; a shank portion extending in a substantially straight line away from the curved portion; and an eye having an inner region for enclosing a fishing line, the eye formed of a rod-like material contiguous with the shank portion at a first point, following a curvilinear path through at least two-hundred seventy degrees, and terminating at a second point short of contacting the shank portion, leaving an opening of a predetermined width into the inner region of the eye.
