I came across this picture on the internet. I can only gather that this is an illustration for a guy that bait cast from shore targeting cods. I don't understand the diagram on the top right corner and the device that looks like a guitar body shown next to the bunker head(?).

foxfai: Could it be a skinning/scaling/cleaning/filleting board?

 

Or a sinker with a spike used to anchor the sinker?

 

EDIT: It is a sinker and baited hook.

The barely legible caption beneath it reads: " SINKER AND BAITED HOOK."

One of the illustrations shows the fisherman using a throwing stick. The spike on the sinker fits in a hole on the end of the throwing stick.

 

Or, "how to cast without a reel".
