Fishhook material. Proximal hook stock remnants, rows 1 and 2. Row 3, left, basal tab; center, basal tab on which another hook was made; right, proximal stock remnant on which two hooks were made. The opposite corresponding point is missing. Row 4, broken fishhooks, with straight and flared shanks with line grooves cut at neck; far right, stock remnant on which line grooves were cut prior to removal of hook. Apparently the hook broke instead. The shank is not yet grooved for breakage. Photo by Al Redder.
