FISH LANTERN (HOME MADE)

 

 

Night fishing is a pursuit like no other. Fishing is normally more successful during the day, but fishing from dusk to dawn can be rewarding.

 

Early fishermen used torches to illuminate the water where they fished. This charming Fishing Lantern would cast a warm glow, and it was said the light attracted the game fish, and an oil sleeve fuelled this apparatus.

 

It may be one of a kind, but that one of a kind is in our collection.
