Fishing Line Throwing Cartridge


#1

Here is an peculiar cartridge made in Argentina to be used with a fishing line thrower patented in 1987.

Very interesting cartridge! I was unaware these existed. Which in turn, led me to do some research and found this to accompany Fede’s post

Thanks for sharing Fede!

they say there is a very fine line between fishing and watching the tide coming in and going out. Now it’s closer to the old expression of “shooting a line”. So the question is if you need a license to fish do you need a extra license to fire your line out!

Dave, thanks for your interest and for posting a link to the US patent (it was also patented in Argentina and Europe). I had three different variations for almost 15 years without knowing what they were until I came across an advertisement. This is not something you find everyday and most fishermen have never heard of it. Regards, Fede.

Any extras Fede ?

Pete, the head is slightly smaller than a modern 24 gauge, but it has an oversized rim. These are its measurements in millimeters:

Total length: 23.29-23.31
Case length: 11.23-11.26
Case length (assembled): 8.15-8.29
Rim diameter: 19.94-20.15
Head diameter: 16.64-16.71
Neck diameter: 16.49-16.50
Bullet diameter (plastic): 16,49-16,58
Bullet diameter (aluminum): 15.90-15.92
Rim thickness: 0.99-1.02

Sorry, I’m afraid that I don’t have any extras at the moment.

Regards,

Fede
