The "harness" Is a metal hold-er having triple' hooks, which Is attached to live halt—presumably « herring. It la a simple looking affair to a "cracker"—but appar-ently very effective as far as catching fish is concerned. So ef-fective, in fact, that wholesalers were Interested to the point of agreeing to purchase all that could be made. . A patent Is now pending on this item. Mr. Hendricks made these har-nesses by hand at home—week ends and after his eight hour work day In Seattle. He was finally forced to enlist the aid of his at-tractive wife, Daisy, and daughter Kartn Lee Hendricks, to take care oT the rapidly increasing number of orders. 5 An ardent fishing fan himself. "Casey" had a few other Ideas for improving equipment already of-fered sportsmen "In this field. He experimented for some time with trolling spoons and finally devel-oped on* that he considered satis-factory. It is made of stainless steel with flexible cshle and plea-tic rudder, excellent for both fresh or salt water fishing. He explain-ed that the plastic rudder Is an Im-provement. ln'as much As in some lakes the metal rUdder Is pro-hibited. This spoon, called K-C a "ACE OP DIAMONDS", from the small red diamond stamped into the metal, is already becoming well known In fishing circles on Pu-get Sound.

If Mr. Hendricks was going to make a business of these fishing Ideas, then the thing to do was to become a "business"—legally and officially. Accordingly, they were organized Into a registered man-ufacturing business, government controls, restrictions et al.
