Catching Rats With Fish Hooks

An old ex-B&O man told us the following:"When I was a boy in the country one ground floor room of our house was used to store grain and nuts in. As there was an old fireplace in the room, we boys spent some of the long winter days in it by catching rats. As there were a number of holes in the floor, we boys would bait our fish hooks with corn, drop them down the holes. The rats would swallow the corn and then we would pull them out and kill them. We caught and killed many of them in this way.
