From neatorama.com, this photo of a fish hook gun, produced in the late 19th or early 20th century. When a fish yanked on the hook, the fishing line pulled the trigger, and it discharged a 4mm centerfire cartridge that sent a tiny bullet out the hole in the bottom of the shaft, shooting the fish. Not exactly catch and release....

That's a neat but odd invention... but I guess it beats having to fight the fish for hours. Judging by the size of that thing, it's meant for somewhat lager fish than the 50cm northern pikes I usually catch (mind you, I am trying to get European perch, but the pike is everywhere...)
