Thomas Turner Fly Fishing Antiques is on a distinguished road
Default 3 antique cork Pike trimmers, all named and great pike collectors pieces

Set of 3 antique cork and wood pike trimmers, varying from 4 ½”-5 ¼” diameters, all marked “P.D”, being the owner’s initials and numbered 2, 6 and 11

*removable centre pegs, fitted with trace gut, wire and cork,

these rare trimmers were used in the lake district by fishermen catching pike for the table, they were thrown in the lake at night and left to float with a live frog or fish bait, the pike gorging the bait and the angler taking to a boat to retrieve the trimmer some time later or next day, identified by his name and number, this practise now outlawed, a great historical set for any pike collector.
