pretty shiny vicious things.... these looked so nice I thought i would buy them just as pretties....but then noticed the massive 'orrible would have destroyed the fish to take the hooks out, so i left them in the shop.....heaven only knows what size fish they are designed to catch

(i know what it means, but why?)

well i suppose i know what it means....but are they just ripping fish up from the sea bed?

but they are big ass hooks!

you could extract the hooks from the Tempest ones and they would do well with the frogs, wherever they have ended up.

paintist says:

the hooks were far too integral to the whole thing...they would have been trashed...but that was my first thought when I saw 'em....

you can get just the squiddy things on their own - we had loads of them before...

they're pretty cheap too, from what i remember...

EDIT: just realised from the title that they're called muppets, not 'squiddy things'

paintist says:

yep, hence the title you muppet...I wasn't really interested in the muppets....still have some , but the bottom ones were really very pretty.....

I recognise those...when I've been out with Rick shopping for shiny things to kill the fishies. He doesn't use them though.

could not just nip off the ends of the hooks with some pliers? that'd at least stop them being so pointy...

22nd Sep 2006, 11:13

M_F you can just by the top ones on their own they dont look like they were as big as these tho! but yeah you could have just snipped them near the base or summit!

paintist says:

I think I might do that ! there were lots of other pretty killers in that shop.....

i am confussed what bit is the muppet?

22nd Sep 2006, 17:29

paintist says:

the muppet is the funny octopus thing...they come in hundreds of colours depending on what catches the eye of the fish.....

FilbertFox says:

why are they called muppets?

22nd Sep 2006, 17:47

paintist says:

no idea...maybe they reminded someone of 'animal' ....:-)
