Meet Minke The Fishing Multi-tool From Meso Design

Minke is a small multi-tool that fits over your finger like a ring and will help you easily thread those nearly invisible leaders and tippets through tiny hook eyelets. It also makes tying a simple clinch knot a snap, and there is even a tool to clip the end of your line, as well as an eyelet cleaner.

The Minke is not a tool for everyone, but float and fly fishermen that frequently use tiny hooks (#8-12) and super thin tippets (5-8X) will definitely take notice. The demo is quite impressive and such a tool would save time and get you back in the strike zone faster. The project has already found funding on Kickstarter, and you’ll even find my name among the backers, but it’s not too late to preorder one for yourself.

Awesome Swordfish Tattoo by Matt Adamson

My good friend Phil alerted me to this fantastic swordfish tattoo by artist Matt Adamson. It’s difficult to understand the placement of the tattoo from the photos below but it looks to me like the tops of the shoulders, as if the swordfish has gone through the neck.

Matt is now stationed at Jayne Doe tattoo studio in Essex, and if you’re nearby and looking for tattoos I would definitely recommend you check him out. You can see more of Matt’s amazing work and follow him on Instagram. Another great shot after the break with elements of the original drawing.

If you haven’t been following our Twitter or Instagram feeds you’ve missed out on some fantastic winter fishing. Don’t worry, we’ve uploaded all of our best photos to our winter steelhead fishing gallery and we’ll continue to update it as the remaining weeks of winter pass.
