Fishing line

Fishing line predates the wheel as a basic primitive food harvesting tool. Ancient anglers never used hooks, simply yanked the fish out of the water and they seized the bait offering tied to the end of the line. Eventually, the hook was invented when they realized that bait containing a piece of bone was more likely to jam in the fish's mouth.
