Autolining is an environmentally friendly catching method which also preserves the quality of the fish.
We in Mustad Autoline are continuously working on new and innovative solutions, so that more fish can be caught by hook and line.
The production machines for fish hooks was never patented, but kept secret by means of closed doors for 125 years. Only those few people responsible for the production were allowed entrance to the building.
