This is a set of eight fish lures with shanks made from antler and bone and with iron hooks. The shank of each lure is narrow at one end, where a pair of holes has been drilled for attaching to a fishing line, and broader at the opposite end where a hook has been inserted into a drilled hole. Most of these lures have been decorated with lines engraved into the shank. Several have pieces of copper and glass beads and pieces of ivory beads set into the shank, in some cases near the hook ends, in imitation of small fish. One lure has a serrated edge, a feature that helped in attaching a piece of fish skin bait or a weight.
