Length of fishing line made from twisted maple bark fibers with two halibut hooks attached. Each hook is V-shaped and made from two pieces of wood lashed together. One hook is missing the lashing that binds the two pieces. One end of each hook has a metal barb attached, pointing inward. The other end of one hook is carved into what is likely a raven's head with a halibut's body and tail. The second hook has the end carved into what is likely a mountain goat's head, a halibut's body, and is lined on the sides with the suction cups of a devilfish.
