"Why do we believe that in all matters the odd numbers are more powerful?" ~ Pliny the Elder, Natural HistoryThirty-five (35) fish hooks; not forty or fifty, but thirty-five. And extra strong fish hooks at that. Why? Why thirty-five? The little box only holds this many? Why not just make a bigger box? It's been done before. Advil comes in bottles of even numbered tablets; does this mean they are not a powerful as they would be if they came in bottles of 235 or 429? I don't know, but I hope these hooks are strong enough to handle that 20 pound catfish I'm going to snare one of these days!
