HOOKY® Thread Your Hook In A Second!

The Hooky is a device that threads a fish hook in seconds! Place the hook in the slot as shown above, and thread the line in the big hole on other side. Pull it out and tie the knot. Great for those who have bad eyesight, shaky hands, disabilities, and big hands. Clips on your rod or hat and it floats!

Jim and Stacy are from the Tennessee Inventors Association.

Women Inventors, long overlooked, are churning out more patents than ever!

“In 1976, the number of patents that included a woman as an inventor was less than 4%. By 2016, that figure had jumped to 21%, the US Patent and Trademark Office said in a report released in February.

A 2017 study deemed women as “lost Einsteins” — people who could have created high-impact inventions if they had received early exposure to innovation and inventor role models.” – CNN
